Girl Scouts knows your priorities are educating students who are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and social awareness to succeed and who will become active, engaged citizens in an ever-changing world. By leading and learning in an all-girls environment, girls have the opportunity to challenge their fears, problem-solve, and work collaboratively while understanding how to manage their emotions, establish positive relationships, and gain a sense of belonging - which we know out students need right now.
Girl Scouts teaches girls the skills that they will need today and through their entire academic journey - into college and onto a rewarding career.
In Girl Scouts, girls take a hands-on approach to complement what they are learning in the classroom every day. We complement your academic curriculum and teach girls how to be a leader, inside and outside of the classroom.
Our programming works hand-in-hand to enrich the academic skills girls gain every day by giving them a safe space to practice STEM and life skills, become entrepreneurs, and explore the outdoors. Research shows Girl Scouts are more likely to earn excellent grades, demonstrate higher academic aspirations, show a higher interest and involvement in their community, and have a stronger sense of self. As active members of your community and school, girls will be better prepared for life's challenges.
Our goal is for girls to learn to think critically about different issues and to solve problems together. We encourage teamwork and collaboration as much as we encourage independence and self-discovery. Here, a girl learns to believe in herself as well as count on her community for support. She works as part of a team, brings people with varying perspectives together to devise solutions, and respects and appreciates the views of others as much as she does her own.
2021 Study - The Girl Scout Alum Difference: A Lifetime of Courage, Confidence, and Character
To understand the long-term benefits of Girl Scouting and earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) conducted a national study with 1,000 Girl Scout alums, 800 women who were never Girl Scouts, and 922 Gold Award Girl Scout alums.
The study confirms past findings from Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study (2012) and The Power of the Girl Scout Gold Award (2016), which both show how Girl Scouting makes a profound positive difference in girls’ lives.
