The Power of Girl Scouts for Girls

Now, more than ever, girls face unique challenges in school, social settings and as they enter the work place. Our proven Girl Scout program is based on years of research about girls’ development and is designed to: 

  • Close the confidence gap (research is clear – it starts for girls at age 6, when they start to believe that they are less capable than boys, and it accelerates in middle school and continues through college); 
  • Develop and fortify girls’ belief in their identities as leaders; 
  • Inoculate girls against the constant drum of media that tells them they must be perfect and sexually desirable; and 
  • Strengthen them to stand up to the peer pressure and bullying that girls experience starting in elementary school.

At Girl Scouts, G.I.R.L.s (Go-Getters, Innovators, Risk-takers & Leaders) are the STARS! Girl Scouts across our 47 counties do tremendous things including serving others with life-changing service projects, traveling the world, taking on the biggest adventures in the outdoors, putting their innovator skills into action with hands-on STEM experiences and so much more. Here’s some nice highlights and be sure to always stay up to date by following our social media.

Give

At Girl Scouts, we know that when girls are given the opportunity, they change the world. Your gift helps girls learn to be safe, think for themselves, and lead the way for others. Imagine what an entire generation of girls can do, given confidence, skills and preparation to lead. 100% of your donation will go to support girls in the communities of NE Kansas & NW Missouri. Learn more

Volunteer

As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined. Our volunteer opportunities range from year-long commitments like being a troop leader to short commitments like supporting during an event or for a community recruitment event. Learn more.
