The Girl Scout Leadership Experience
Girls Scouts engage in discovering their interests and abilities, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place. Girls say a leader is defined not only by the qualities and skills one has, but also by how those qualities and skills are used to make a difference in the world.
In Girl Scouts, leadership isn't just about building future leaders - it's about building girl leaders for today!
How does it happen? Because activities are girl-led; because activities are designed for learning by doing; and because activities require cooperative learning.
Girls DISCOVER: they develop a strong sense of self; develop
positive values; gain practical life skills; seek challenges in the world; and develop critical thinking.
Girls CONNECT: they develop healthy relationships; promote cooperation
and team building; resolve conflicts; advance diversity in a multicultural world; and feel connected
to their communities, locally and globally.
Girls TAKE ACTION: they can identify community needs; become
resourceful problem solvers; advocate for themselves and others; educate and inspire others to
act; and feel empowered to make a difference in the world.
