The Girl Scout Leadership Experience engages girls in discovering self, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place. All Girl Scout experience are designed to tie in one or more of the 15 outcomes of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
The Girl Scout Leadership Experience encourages girls to take increasing responsibility for designing and implementing their own activities, which results in extensive opportunities for them to see how their actions can impact the lives of others.
Age-appropriate activities in Girl Scouting introduce girls to new concepts. Through these activities, caring adults encourage girls to explore a variety of related topics, empower them with the ability to choose the directions they will take to accomplish a goal, and then support them as they put their ideas into action.
