We all know Girl Scouts are leaders who display an admirable amount of courage, confidence, and character! For over 100 years, since the beginning of our organization’s formation, our goal has been to help girls feel empowered as they raise their voices, take the lead, and create change. Whether they’re volunteering their time or coordinating their own service project, our girls are known for working hard to make the world a better place.
Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) recently launched the G.I.R.L. Agenda Powered by Girl Scouts, a nonpartisan initiative to inspire, prepare, and mobilize girls and those who care about them to lead positive change through civic action. The multiyear effort celebrates the Girl Scout legacy of civic engagement, and for the first time ever, we’re sharing these free, expert-curated resources beyond our 2.6 million members so we can reach as many girls as possible. The materials are derived from renowned Girl Scout programming that has driven generations of girls over the past century to become leaders.
Girl Scouts encourages girls to accept the challenge to uncover the root of a problem, stand up, and make a difference as they become empowered go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders. With the G.I.R.L. Agenda’s Civic Action Toolkit as well as Citizen badges for girls at every level, girls have countless opportunities to take the lead and build a better future.
We all want our girls to grow up to do great things. Be a catalyst for change in your community—and the world.
