The Girl Scout Leadership Model

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience model engages girls in discovering themselves, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place. This model begins with a definition of leadership that girls understand and believe in: a leader, girls say, is defined not only by the qualities and skills one has, but also by how those qualities and skills are used to make a difference in the world. Research suggests that the youth development field is moving from the model of one individual leader to a model of shared leadership. This more inclusive and empowering approach is also the one girls most value. It encourages girls to take increasing responsibility for designing and implementing activities, and this results in extensive opportunities for them to see how their actions can impact the lives of others.

The Girl Scout Research Institution

It’s amazing what you can learn when you listen to girls
.
Since its founding in 2000, the Girl Scout Research Institute has become an internationally recognized center for research and public policy information on the development and well-being of girls. Not just Girl Scouts, but all girls. In addition to research staff, the GSRI draws on experts in child development, education, business, government, and the not-for-profit sector. We provide the youth development field with definitive research reviews that consolidate existing studies. And, by most measures, we are now the leading source of original research on the issues that girls face and the social trends that affect their lives.

Let's Go! Traveling with girls

TRAVEL WITH GIRLS

Travel teaches girls 21st century skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, global awareness and cultural sensitivity. It all starts with a Daisy troop’s first trip to their local fire station or library. Brownies can explore all around the state. Junior girls explore the state and the region. By the time a girl is a Cadette or older, she is ready to take flight and explore the whole country and the world.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRL SCOUTS!!

Welcome to Girl Scout Week!

One of the highlights of Girl Scout Week is the Girl Scout Birthday on March 12th. One hundred and two years ago Juliette Gordon Low held the very first Girl Scout meeting and kick started the largest organization for girls in America today. Juliette was an innovative woman with the insight to know just what girls needed in 1912 and in 2014 – a place where girls could explore, grow, and meet new friends.

So, have a Birthday Party and celebrate the wonderful gift of Girl Scouting.
