The Girl Scout Impact

Through Girl Scout programs, girls make choices and decisions on what they will do and how they will accomplish it, set goals as a team and participate in hands-on activities that allow them to think critically. Girl Scouts develop skills that support success in school, while also getting additional opportunities to learn about problem-solving, collaboration and how to actively engage in their communities.

Girls credit Girl Scouts with helping them to:

  • Develop positive values: 89%
  • Make better decisions and positive choices in their life: 74%
  • Develop healthy relationships: 86%
  • Resolve conflicts fairly and positively: 87%
  • Develop leadership skills and demonstrate personal responsibility: 81%
  • Participate in service learning and believe their actions make a difference in the world: 85%
