In an all-girl environment, girls discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together. Girl Scouts helps cultivate values, community service, self-esteem, and leadership skills in young women, ages 5 to 17. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who help make the world a better place.
