What Girl Scouts Do

In Girl Scouting, you’re going to have tons of fun, make new friends and go on fantastic adventures.

You’re also going to do big things. Our program revolves around the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a collection of activities and experiences you’ll have as you earn badges, sell cookies, go on exciting trips, explore the outdoors, create Take Action projects that make a difference and more.

The Result? A Lifetime of Leadership!
