Leadership Program

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Since 1912, the Girl Scout Movement instilled girls with the keys they need to become leaders in their communities and their professional life.

Now we're defining what we're doing with national, outcomes-based program activities that are designed to guide girls along a life-long path to lead.
The Girl Scout Leadership Experience identifies three "keys" to leadership:

  • Discover - girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world
  • Connect - girls care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally
  • Take Action - girls act to make the world a better place.

In Girl Scouting, it's not just "what girls do" (activities), but "how" (processes) they do the (activities). These processes are Girl-Led, Learning by Doing, and Cooperative Learning.
