For over 100 years, the Girl Scout movement has been changing the
lives of girls and improving communities locally and around the world.
As Girl Scouts Heart of the South moves forward into a second century of girl opportunities,
we can look back and see how the foundation of Girl Scouts is ever present
in today's Girl Scout experience. By providing relevant programming for
today's girls, we cultivate leadership through exciting activities that
challenge girls to take on new journeys.
Where else can you learn new dance moves, go camping, take care of the
planet, develop your leadership skills, contribute to your community,
learn business skills, experience art, stay healthy and active, become
independent and work together as a team in one place? Girl Scouts Heart
of the South prepares girls for their future by focusing on leadership,
math, science, technology, healthy living, financial literacy and the
arts. We also offer programs through community partnerships.
THE BASICS OF THE GIRL SCOUT TRADITION:
- meet new people and have fun
in a troop setting
- discover what interests you
- develop confidence and grow together with
other girls and young women
- become independent and gain courage
- contribute to your community
- learn business skills and how to budget
- set individual and group goals and connect with others
- earn some of
Girl Scouting's highest honors - Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards
access to many leadership opportunities that aren't available anywhere
- travel the world!
