Programs: At Girl Scouts, you’re going to have tons of fun, make new friends, and go on fantastic new adventures. You’re also going to get the chance to do big things. Our program centers on something called 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, do Take Action projects that make a difference, and more. Put simply, in Girl Scouts you will: discover_64 Discover. You’ll find out who you are, what you care about, and what your talents are. connect_64 Connect. Collaborate with other people, locally and globally, to make a difference in the world. takeaction_64 Take Action. Do something to make the world a better place. With Girl Scouts, you’ll do more than you ever thought you could, dream bigger dreams than you ever imagined, and — oh, yeah — change the world. Bet you didn’t think rock climbing or selling cookies would help you do all that, did you?

I am a long-time volunteer with the program, I have given many girls an opportunity to learn more about themselves to become girls of courage, confidence and character.
