More About Girl Scouts

Welcome to the world’s largest girl organization dedicated to empowering girls through leadership experiences.

Girl Scout Mission

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Most girls join a local troop for fun and friendship, but they also find out about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities—the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society.
