What Makes You #GirlScoutProud?


Maybe it’s because Girl Scouts taught you how to engage with your community, through civic engagement and service, or because Girl Scouts helped you gain an undeniable respect for nature. Whether you most value the life skills and character development, outdoor adventures, STEM activities, or participating in the largest girl-led business in the world, we want to know what makes you #GIRLScoutProud!

Share your stories, statements, and experiences with us on our facebook page ( and urge your Girl Scout friends to do the same!
