GIRL SCOUTING BUILDS GIRLS OF COURAGE, CONFIDENCE, AND CHARACTER, WHO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.

Girl Scout Leadership Experience

From the very beginning, Girl Scouts has been about developing girls' leadership.

Now we're defining what we're doing with national, outcomes-based program activities that are designed to guide girls along a life-long path to lead with courage, confidence, and character as they continue to make the world a better place.

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience identifies three "keys" to leadership that replace the four program goals. These are Discover - girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world; Connect - girls care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally, Take Action - girls act to make the world a better place.

In Girl Scouting, it's not just "what girls do" (activities), but "how" (processes) they do the (activities). These processes are Girl-Led, Learning by Doing, and Cooperative Learning.
