Our Programs

At Girl Scouts, you’re going to have tons of fun, make new friends, and go on fantastic new adventures.

You’re also going to get the chance to do big things. Our program centers on something called the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a collection of activities and experiences you’ll have as you earn badges, sell cookies, go on exciting trips, explore the outdoors, do Take Action projects that make a difference, and more.

Put simply, in Girl Scouts you will:

You’ll find out who you are, what you care about, and what your talents are.

Connect.
Collaborate with other people, locally and globally, to make a difference in the world. 
 

takeaction_64

Do something to make the world a better place.
 

Badges

What’s that? You’ve always wanted to…

Make your own movie, cook food from a different country, go geocaching, sleep under the stars, write a book of short stories, plant a garden?

Invent something new, paint a masterpiece, star in a play, take amazing nature photographs, make your bedroom into a jungle, run a business, go on an adventure trip?

Become an awesome babysitter,  sew yourself a dress,  build a wooden bench,  learn to play a musical instrument, or design a website?

Great news! You can learn to do all these things and earn Girl Scout badges as you go. 

Want to earn a badge by learning something else entirely? We’ve got you covered with our Make Your Own badge option. Just figure out what you want to learn and who can help you, then go online to create a badge of your own design.

Journeys

We know you want to make a difference in the world—and have fun doing it. You’ll be able to do just that when you go on a Girl Scout Journey.

You’ll team up with friends to:

Put your plan into action

Talk about what you learned—and what you can’t wait to do next!

There are three series of Journeys to choose from at every grade level:

It’s Your Story—Tell It!

 

It’s Your Planet—Love It!

 

It’s Your World—Change It!

 

You’ll pick the Journey topic that interests you most, whether it’s caring for animals, helping others get healthy and fit, spreading kindness, saving the planet, taking a stand for girls, creating community—or any other issue that’s really important to you.

As you go on your Journey, you’ll earn awards to put on your uniform. They’ll let others know about the awesome things you’ve done—and remind you of what you accomplished and the fun you had along the way.

With Girl Scouts, you’ll do more than you ever thought you could, dream bigger dreams than you ever imagined, and — oh, yeah — change the world. Bet you didn’t think rock climbing or selling cookies would help you do all that, did you?
