Mission: At Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa, it is our mission to show girls that they have the power to have a positive effect on not just their community, but the world. With the support and essential leadership skills that Girl Scouting provides, girls are empowered to truly aim for the stars. Whether it means pursuing her dream of being the first female President, or starting her own animal shelter, if she dreams it, she can do it. And together, we can help her get there.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 11,000 girls and 3,000 adults
Programs: At Girl Scouts, girls 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 girls will: Discover. They’ll find out who they are, what they care about, and what theirtalents are. Connect. Collaborate with other people, locally and globally, to make a difference in the world. Take Action. Do something to make the world a better place. With Girl Scouts, girls will do more than they ever thought they could, dream bigger dreams than they ever imagined, and — oh, yeah — change the world.
