The G.I.R.L. Agenda Powered by Girl Scouts is a nonpartisan initiative to inspire, prepare, and mobilize girls and those who care about them to lead positive change through civic action. The multiyear effort celebrates the Girl Scout legacy of civic engagement programming—which now includes a new badge for girls as young as five—and will provide girls and adults with tools to be catalysts for change who strengthen their communities and the world.
Civic action is all about working to make a difference for the common good. For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts has supported girls by offering resources that prepare them to lead, lift their voices, champion their views, and be advocates for the issues and ideas important to them. When it comes to improving society, every person who identifies with the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ Agenda has a role and a responsibility.
The G.I.R.L. Agenda makes it simple and rewarding to access free civic engagement resources derived from Girl Scout programming to prepare all G.I.R.L.s to do the below and more:
• Advocate for positive change in their communities. Cassandra, a 17-year-old Ambassador, has been fighting to end child marriage in New Hampshire.
• Stand up against everyday injustices. Muslim Girl Scouts in California educate their community by holding an annual Open Mosque Day to combat Islamophobia.
• Challenge unfair policies and champion causes....
