About

Who We Are and What We Do

We’re 2.7 million strong-1.9 million girls and 800,000 adult volunteers who believe girls can change the world.

While some people still think of us as just cookies, badges, campfires, and friendship bracelets, Girl Scouts are somuch more. Girl Scouts are groundbreakers, big thinkers, and role models. Girl Scouts design robots, start garage bands, and improve their communities-and yes, they sell the best cookies on the planet. When she's a Girl Scout, she’s also a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)(tm).

We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.
