Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
We’re the Girl Scouts.
We’re 3.2 million strong--3.2 million girls and adults who believe every girl can change the world.
It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low, who believed in the power of every girl. Today, we continue her vision of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place by helping them discover their inner strength, passions, and talents. And with program activities from coast to coast and across oceans, there’s a chance for every girl to do something amazing.
We’re the Girl Scouts. To volunteer, reconnect, donate, or join, visit girlscoutsindiana.org or call 855.GSCIN.4U.
Having been a GSCI volunteer for five years now, my only regret is that I wasn't a Girl Scout as a girl! When I agreed to lead my daughter's troop, I had no idea that I would make so many new friends myself. It has been an incredibly fulfilling experience to watch the girls in my troop grow from girls into young women. GSCI offers all the free training a volunteer needs to make a difference in girls' lives. Volunteers have a lot of flexibility in choosing exactly how they would like to help girls.
I would recommend GSCI and I do. You meet the nicest people. You can get all kinds of training, and just the fact that you can impact a girls life says it all. Most of my dearest friends are Girl Scouts, and I treasure them all. But the most satisfying thing of all is when a young lady comes up to you and says Thank you for being there for me.
As an outdoor trainer, I enjoy sharing my skills and appreciation of the outdoors with girls and their leaders. Growing up as a Girl Scout gave me so many opportunities and I want to be sure girls now can have similar experiences.
