The Girl Scout Leadership Experience

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 experiences are intentionally designed to tie to one or more of the 15 national leadership outcomes, or benefits, categorized under three keys to leadership.

  • Discover: Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.
  • Connect: Girls care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally.
  • Take Action: Girls act to make the world a better place.

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience provides three processes for adults partnering with girls to incorporate: Girl Led, Cooperative, Learning by Doing

How to Become Involved

Girl Scouts is a girl-led program. However, caring adults help facilitate the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Adult volunteers are needed to help run or assist at troop meetings, manage product sale programs, chaperone field trips or share your special skills.  Volunteers are needed in all aspects of girl scouting whether it be working with girls or other adult volunteers.  Adult volunteers who meet frequently with girls are expected to complete an application and background check, register and obtain necessary training for their position.
