Advocacy

Girl Scouts of the USA’s advocacy efforts focus on informing and educating key representatives of the government's legislative and executive branches about issues important to girls and Girl Scouting and lobbying for increased resources.

Girl Scouts' advocacy priorities are to:

  • Encourage girls' healthy living through combating Relational Aggression and promoting girl-positive media images
  • Promote girls' involvement in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)
  • Give a voice to girls in underserved communities
  • Ensure girls feel emotionally and physically safe
  • Prevent youth violence in communities
  • Develop girls’ financial literacy skills
