 What We Do

Girl Scouts gives girls access to life-changing experiences that inspire them to do something big.

Each Girl Scout designs fun and challenging activities that empower her to discover her world and herself, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place. Girl Scout offers flexible ways to participate, called Pathways, that allow girls to engage in one or more programs that work with her schedule.

Girl Scouts develops leaders who value diversity, inclusion, and collaboration and are committed to improving neighborhoods, communities and the world. Girls learn to be environmental stewards so that they and their environments can thrive. They get the fun, positive challenges they need to try out leadership roles in an encouraging environment and make decisions that help them learn and grow.

Every experience in Girl Scouting is designed to be:

  • Girl-led. Girls play an active part in figuring out the what, where, when, how and why of their activities.
  • Learning by doing. Rather than listening to someone tell them about it, girls get in there and do it! They ask questions, share ideas, gain skills and take time to reflect.
  • Cooperative learning. Girls work together toward shared goals in an atmosphere of respect and collaboration.
