Looking to Join Girl Scouts?

Girl Scouts recognizes and values the variety of goals and dreams girls pursue. We believe in girls. We believe girls should know with certainty that they can be anything they want to be. Everyone can support a girl’s pursuit of her dreams. Join us today!

Why Join?        

  • Fully one-third of girls who do not want to be leaders attribute their lack of motivation to fear of being laughed at, making people mad at them, coming across as bossy, or not being liked by people.
  • When parents and guardians do encourage their daughters to lead, the impact of their encouragement helps to narrow the ambition gap between boys and girls.

Girl Scouts is parternering with to launch Ban Bossy, a public service campaign with the mission to encourage leadership in girls through banning the word "bossy." By doing so we support the development of her leadership. Pledge with us to Ban Bossy today!
