Girl Scouts of Central Maryland wants to send a strong message to our members that the decision of the Boy Scouts will in no way impact our program. We will remain an all-girl organization that is dedicated to empowering girls and helping them find their voice so that they can make the world a better place. Girl Scouts is the BEST leadership experience for girls. Only Girl Scouts brings the time-tested methods and research-backed programs that speak to the strengths of girl leadership development.
Girl Scouts understands the vital connection between young girls’ development and their future success. The inclusive, girl-led environment creates a safe space where girls can try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and feel comfortable failing, dusting themselves off, and trying again. It allows them the freedom to be themselves without the pressures and social anxiety that can result from a mixed-gender environment.
Girl Scouts promotes support and collaboration among girls instead of competition. As a result, they have more chances to lead and, they can stretch beyond their limits as they learn to transfer valuable lessons and skills to any environment, both now and in the future. The impact of Girl Scouting is proven. In the United States: 90% of female astronauts who have traveled in space; 80% of female tech leaders; 75% of current female senators; and, 50% of female business owners are all Girl Scout alumnae.
To create more female leaders, we need to start young and make sure today’s girls are acquiring the courage, confidence, character, and other skills they need to take the reins of leadership in the 21st century. Girl Scouts has been a key driver of workforce development for women for over a century. To prepare girls for the leadership roles they’ll take on in the future, we need to provide them with an unparalleled leadership experience now—an experience that can only come from the best leadership organization for girls in the world: Girl Scouts. With more than 100 years of experience, Girl Scouts brings a wealth of knowledge that provides girls cornerstone experiences with benefits to last a lifetime.
Girl Scouts works. We’re committed to preparing the next generation of women leaders, and we’re here to stay.
