About Girl Scouts

GSUSA Mission Statement

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

This mission statement illustrates that Girl Scouting offers a girl countless opportunities to expand her boundaries and connect with other girls and her community, in which she can courageously share her heart, confidently speak her mind, and demonstrate the character to lead others.
