The new Girl Scout Leadership Experience is the world’s best leadership experience that defines activities and outcomes, differentiated by grade level, for girls from kindergarten through high school, and offers flexible pathways for participation.

From the very beginning, Girl Scouts has been about developing girl’s leadership abilities.  Now we’re doing it better than ever with national, outcome-based program activities that are designed to guide girls along a life-long path to lead with courage when they speak out on issues they care about and take active roles in their communities; lead with confidence when they make the most of their strengths and feel empowered to make a difference in their lives and beyond; lead with character when they act with integrity and compassion, making decisions that promote the well-being of themselves and others…as they continue to make the world a better place.
