It's All About Fun, Friends, and Fantastic Opportunities
Girl Scouting is for every girl, everywhere—where today's girls can become tomorrow's leaders. Membership in Girl Scouts is open to girls in grades K- 12; women and men over 18 can join as adult members.
Most girls join a local troop or group for fun and friendship, but they also find out about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities—the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society.
The Girl Scout program is based on the needs and interests of girls. All members:

Girl Scout Mission
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
When Juliette Gordon Low founded Girl Scouts in 1912, she understood that dedicated and dynamic leaders were vital to helping girls develop their full potential. Today, the organization is led by the Chief Executive Officer, National Board of Directors, headquarters staff, and volunteers and professional staff in over 100 local councils across the U.S. With the support, vision, and commitment of these role models, girls have the opportunity to find—and become—leaders in their communities and the world.
