Girl Scout Research Institute Releases

New Study on Teens and Tweens

December 2, 2009 - The Girl Scout Research Institute released a new study today entitled, Good Intentions: The Beliefs and Values of Teens and Tweens Today. The nationwide survey of 3,263 students in grades 3 -12 was conducted by the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI), and is nearly identical to one Girl Scouts commissioned in 1989. A comparison of the studies shows a marked shift toward more ethical and responsible beliefs and values and civic involvement among teens and tweens.

While many youth have good intentions about making responsible choices, they need help connecting these desires to action. This study shows that kids today are making better decisions than they were 20 years ago and demonstrates how important adults are in helping to shape those decision-making skills.

For more information about the study, visit http://www.girlscouts.org/ and contact Girl Scouts of Connecticut to find out what programs GSOFCT offers Girl Scouts in Connecticut to help them make better choices and decisions in their lives.
