Why Girl Scouts?


You want to see your daughter happy, confident, strong, and ready to succeed. So does Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts is the place where your daughter can be herself, explore her interests, develop her talents, and build skills that help her to succeed. There’s something for every girl, no tryouts or auditions required. No matter what interests your daughter, whether it’s making new friends, caring for animals, building robots,  riding horses, traveling near or far, or just having fun, she can pursue  them all in Girl Scouts. Unlike other youth programs with entry requirements, all girls, from kindergarten through 12th grade, are welcome to join and have an amazing Girl Scout adventure!

Fun, friends, and brighter futures abound!

With Girl Scouts, girls not only have fun, they also have unique, memorable experiences, designed to help them develop the skills they believe good leaders possess such as  standing up for their beliefs and values, bringing people together to get things done, and taking action  to change the world for the better.1   The long-term benefits of Girl Scouting are profound.  Women who were Girl Scouts have greater life outcomes than women who were not Girl Scouts including higher income, increased volunteerism and community work, and a stronger sense of self.2

Girl Scout membership has its benefits:

  • Age appropriate, themed programs and activities
  • Skill building badges and recognitions
  • College scholarship opportunities
  • Respect for traditions, enhanced sense of responsibility, and increased motivation
  • Lifelong friends and expanded networks
