Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, girls in kindergarten to 12th grade are engaged in discovering themselves, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place.

Girls develop leadership potential by participating in age-appropriate activities that enable them to discover their values, skills, and the world around them.

Activities in science and technology, business and economic literacy, and outdoor and environmental awareness provide girls with opportunities for fun and friendship while fostering the development of leadership skills and self-esteem.
