Girl Scouts – 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.
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.
