Girl Scouts bring their dreams to life and work together to build a better world.
Through programs from coast to coast, Girl Scouts of all backgrounds and abilities can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges—whether they want to climb to the top of a tree or the top of their class, lace up their boots for a hike or advocate for climate justice, or make their first best friends.
Backed by trusted adult volunteers, mentors, and millions of alums, Girl Scouts lead the way as they find their voices and make changes that affect the issues most important to them.
A squad that will cheer you on. A chance to try new things. That’s what being a Girl Scout is all about. Your Girl Scout community is a place to call your own, test your limits, and have a blast.
Restock the local food pantry. Beautify your school’s playground. Lobby for change at a city council meeting. Making the world a better place is all in a day’s work for a Girl Scout. Take it to the next level when you earn the Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, or Gold Awards—our highest awards—to make a sustainable impact.
Anyone can tell others what to do. A true leader can make smart decisions, act fairly and responsibly, and let others on the team shine as they work together. Whether it’s running their cookie business or directing a team of volunteers for a Gold Award project.
Then take those badge skills further with Journey award or a Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award. A Journey award allows Girl Scouts to show they know how to take action and make a difference in their community. A highest award shows they know how to solve a problem, permanently.
Each level of Girl Scouts is unique with a wide variety of activities to try. Girl Scouts can begin in kindergarten and join all the way through twelfth grade. As a Girl Scout progresses, every level builds upon the last and allows them to explore their interests in a way that is meaningful—and age-appropriate—to them.
