A Girl Scout is a G. I. R. L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™

At Girl Scouts, girls discover who they are, where their talents lie, and what they care the most about. They connect with people in their communities. And they take action to change the world. Through our program, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, girls develop a strong sense of self, display positive values, and seek challenges. They learn from setbacks, form healthy relationships, and identify and solve problems in their communities — unleashing their inner G.I.R.L. every step of the way.

How does she find the power of G. I. R. L. in her?

Girl Scouts teaches girls to empower themselves by engaging in girl-led, collaborative, and hands-on experiences. Guided by supportive adults who help girls pursue their goals, girls participate in a variety of fun and challenging activities.
