WHY GIRLS CAN'T WAIT TO BE A GIRL SCOUT!
Girl Scouts is a great choice for your daughter! In Girl Scouts, girls feel "I can't wait to..." excitement about what is coming next. This sense of wonder and expectation is an important part of childhood, and girls find both in Girl Scouts.
Even as Girl Scouts have fun, they develop leadership abilities that are crucial to their becoming the change-makers of the future. Girl Scouts is the organization best positioned to offer girls the tools they need to be successful leaders now and throughout their lives. In Girl Scouts, girls develop the courage, confidence, and character they need to make the world a better place.
Benefits of an all-girl environment
Girl Scouts is singular among organizations in the United States in that it is girl-focused and girl-led. The program exists only to serve girls. The organization has found through many years of experience that girls have unique needs that are best met in a program designed specifically for them and delivered in an all-girl setting, because it promotes strength, competence and learning.
Our experiential learning model is grounded in the best research and guides girls to discover, connect, and take action. In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, they grow courageous and strong.
Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skills, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the basis for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
