Girl Scouting is for every girl, everywhere—where today's girls can become tomorrow's leaders.
Girl Scout Mission
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Membership in Girl Scouts is open to girls in grades K through 12; women and men over the age of 17 can join as adult members. Girls join for fun and friendship, but they also learn about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities—the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In partnership with committed adults, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives – like strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth.
