Girl Scout Leadership Experience

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience does not simply teach girls about leadership; it engages them in the process of leadership. Whether they participate weekly in Girl Scout Troop meetings, attend summer camp, or complete a few day workshops each year, girls in our programs work cooperatively and learn-by-doing so they:

  • Develop positive values
  •  Feel connected to their communities - both locally and globally
  •  Gain practical life skills
  •  Advance diversity in a multicultural world
  •  Seek challenges in the world
  •  Can identify community needs
  •  Develop critical thinking
  •  Are resourceful problem solvers
  •  Develop healthy relationships
  •  Advocate for themselves and others
  •  Promote cooperation and team-building
  •  Educate and inspire others to act
  •  Resolve conflicts
  •  Feel empowered to make a difference in the world
