It’s not just what girls do, but how you engage them that creates a high-quality experience. Nowhere is this more important than in our in-school and after-school activities where the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is available to girls 5-17 years of age through the series pathway delivery system.
Our six-week programs enhance girls’ academic and leadership skills as they explore concepts intended to build self-esteem, confidence and leadership ability. We create a safe, girl-only space that fosters collaboration instead of competition, and promotes support among girls.
