Our Program

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:

  • Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)
  • Outdoors
  • Life Skills
  • Entrepreneurship

The Result? A Lifetime of Leadership!

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:

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!
