What We Do

Girl Scouts is all about one thing—girls. Her dreams, ideas, and ambition are our DNA. Does she want to shoot a movie, build a robot, plant a garden, or change a law? She can explore it all at Girl Scouts. Is the world getting her down? We’re not only there to lift her up but also to guide her in growing the confidence to rise above. Whether she’s climbing to the top of a tree or to the top of her class being a Girl Scout will get her there. Because Girl Scouting isn’t just another activity—it’s a way of life. It’s who she is. As a Girl Scout volunteer, your talents and experience have the power to change girls’ lives. You’ll help craft their experiences—from the way they run their cookie businesses to the way they speak up in meetings. You’ll also teach them the skills and give them the confidence they need to bring their unique ideas to life and make changes that they never thought possible. As girls learn, grow, and lead, you’re there through it all—shaping the future right along with us. And while you teach them important life lessons and set them up for happy, successful lives, you’ll grow too—honing your own leadership and organizational skills. It's a win-win.
