The Girl Scout mission is to help girls become women of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. How exactly does that happen? Our success comes from a total focus on what we call the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Every Girl Scout activity helps develop girls in these areas, teaching them the skills necessary to success at school and in life.
Girl Scout Leadership Experience Outcomes
Sense Of Self: Girls have confidence in themselves and their abilities, and form positive identities.
Postive Values: Girls act ethically, honestly and responsibly, and show concern for others.
Challenge Seeking: Girls take appropriate risks, try things even if they might fail, and learn from their mistakes.
Healthy Relationships: Girls develop and maintain healthy relationships by communicating their feelings directly and resolving conflicts constructively
Community Problem Solving: Girls desire to contribute to the world in purposeful and meaningful ways, learn how to identify problems in the community, and create "action plans" to solve them.
Why do these outcomes matter?
When a girl develops these five skills, she'll become:
- A girl who stands up for herself and believes she can do anything
- A girl who is honest, reliable and caring
- A girl who isn't afraid to go outside her comfort zone
- A girl who gets along with and works well with others
- A girl who is an active and engaged citizen
