Why Girl Scouts? Girl Scouting provides a safe place for girls to discover, connect and take action. The mission of the Girl Scouts — to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place — benefits girls, families and communities.

Girl Scouts focuses on appreciating everyone’s unique value, celebrating our differences and supporting one another through obstacles and conflict. This has never been more important as we all grapple with the pain and isolation caused by the global pandemic.

With so many opportunities on both the local and national level, there has never been a better time to be a member of Girl Scouts. We want all girls to have the advantage of being a member of the Girl Scout Movement.
