Mission Statement:

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.

Primary Programs:

Girl Scouts is the world's leading organization dedicated solely to girls ages 5-17, where in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls develop leadership skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adults, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives, like leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth. They discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together.

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience engages girls in discovering self, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place. The Girl Scout program can change the way girls see the world and their place in it. It helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others. Girl Scouting provides programming through troops, in-school during the school day, weekend and evening council-wide programming, resident and day camping opportunities.
