Leadership is part of a Girl Scout’s DNA.
She’s confident, ambitious and committed to empowering herself and others to make a difference. Through the high awards, Girl Scouts delivered over 123,000 hours of community service protecting the environment, mentoring younger students in STEM and music, and advocating against cyberbullying. According to the Girl Scout Research Institute’s Impact Study, Girls Scouts are more likely than non-Girl Scouts to:
|Girl Scouts||Non-Girl Scouts|
|Have a strong sense of self||80%||68%|
|Have positive values||75%||59%|
|Develop and maintain healthy relationships||60%||43%|
|Exhibit community problem solving skills||57%||28%|
As girls progress through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, they can earn our high awards: Bronze, Silver and Gold. The Gold Award is the highest achievement earned by girls who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership, taking an issue they are passionate about and developing a project that has sustainable impact in their communities and beyond. It is the most prestigious award in the world for girls and it’s only available to Girl Scouts.
