About Girl Scouts
Welcome to Girl Scouts, the world’s premiere organization dedicated solely to all girls.
Girl Scouts is a "girl-led" organization where girls take charge, in partnership with committed volunteers, to make decisions and discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls teaming together in a supportive, nurturing environment.
Through an amazing array of enriching experiences, girls are encouraged to express themselves freely, try new things, and experiment in various leadership roles. The process of leading, learning by doing, and collaborating develops character, strong values, social conscience, confidence in one’s potential and self-worth, as well as skills for success in the real world – qualities that will serve girls all their lives.
Every Girl Scout is part of a worldwide family of girls and adults in 145 countries. Today, there are 3.7 million Girl Scouts in the U.S., 2.7 million girl members and 928,000 adult members working primarily as volunteers. More than 50 million women in the U.S. today are Girl Scout alumnae.
