Picture this: A safe, no limits place designed specifically for girls, where they’re inspired to seek out new challenges, build important skills, and take the lead. That’s Girl Scouts. A place where every girl has the space and support she needs to reach her full potential and accomplish amazing things.
Girl Scouts unleashes the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) ™ in every girl, preparing her for a lifetime of leadership—from taking a night-time hike under the stars to accepting a mission on the International Space Station; from lobbying the city council with her troop to holding a seat in Congress; from running her own cookie business today to tackling cybersecurity tomorrow.
“Everything a Girl Scout does is centered on our Four Program Pillars: STEM, Outdoors, Entrepreneurship, and Life Skills. Our research-backed and time-tested Girl Scout Leadership experience is designed to meet her where she is now and to grow along with her,” says Mary Barneby, CEO of Girl Scouts of Connecticut. “In Girl Scouts, girls choose what they do and how they do it from the age of five years old. Whether she is building a robot, coding her first app, hiking the Appalachian Trail, or running her own cookie business, Girl Scouts are taking the lead in their own lives and the world.”
Girl Scouts is proven to help girls thrive in five key ways as they:
1. Develop a strong sense of self.
2. Seek challenges and learn from setbacks.
3. Display positive values.
4. Form and maintain healthy relationships.
5. Identify and solve problems in the community.
With a unique network of more than 50 million girls and women to cheer her on every step of the way, a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure starts here. Join now and watch her unleash her inner strength. To learn more about signing your girl up or to volunteer, visit gsofct.org or call (800) 922-2770.
