At Girl Scouts, your girl will prepare for a lifetime of leadership,
success, and adventure in a safe, no-limits place designed for and by girls!
How? Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a
collection of engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning
badges, going on awesome trips, selling cookies, exploring science,
getting outdoors, and doing community service projects.
At Girl Scouts, she’ll get to lead her own adventure (it’s her
world!) and team up with other girls in an all-girl environment to
choose the exciting, hands-on activities that interest her most. Along
the way, she’ll gain important skills in four areas that form the
foundation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience:
In fact, being a Girl Scout helps girls thrive in five key ways. As
a Girl Scout, she:
• Develops a strong sense of self • Displays
positive values • Seeks challenges and learns
from setbacks • Forms and maintains healthy
relationships • Learns to identify and solve
problems in her community
Delivering Fun with Purpose
To bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to life, activities
are led by girls themselves, feature cooperative learning, and
highlight learning by doing. Girls come up with their own ideas, build
teams, and experience the joy of making a positive impact. At Girl
Scouts, she will:
Discover Find out who she is, what she cares about, and
what her talents are.
Connect. Collaborate with other people, both locally and
globally, to learn from others and expand her horizons.
Take Action. Do something to make the world a better place.

Girl Scouts has teamed up with Wells Fargo to provide real life
exposure to girls that will help them become money mavens. This
exciting and inspiring FREE PATCH PROGRAM is available to all
grade levels and includes an age-appropriate educational online game
approach for girls to learn about financial literacy while having
fun! These experiences will not only inspire girls to set glamorous
goals, but will also ensure they become savvy money earners and
confident money managers.
A 2013 GSUSA study revealed that 94% of girls would rather make
their own money than rely on their parents and 80% would rather make
their own money than marry someone who would support them
financially. Girls feels strongly that financial responsibilities
should be shared, with 86% saying that both household partners should
make financial decision yet only 12% considering themselves very
confident making financial decisions. We can change that!
GSCTX and Wells Fargo know that every girl is a part of the future
of our economy and we want to ensure they are confident in their
financial decision making. We’re so excited to partner with Wells
Fargo Hands on Banking® to make this possible!
