Social pressure, image issues, and uncertain
security—there are so many potential hurdles to girls' well-being. For almost
100 years, Girl Scouting has been helping girls realize their full potential
and everything that we offer today is more relevant than ever.
The Girl Scout program is based on the Girl Scout
Promise and Law, and a program that encourages girls to:
about themselves and the world around them in age-appropriate ways.
Develop appropriate relationships with other
girls and adults and care about the needs of others.
Take Action: Find ways to improve and protect the
world around them, creating a better future for themselves and others through
age-appropriate community service, action-based projects, and community
partnerships that help others.
In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship,
and power of girls together. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as
extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service
projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow
courageous and strong.
