program basics



When you just can't wait for what you'll do next, you can do anything. At Girl Scouts, girls are always counting down to the next adventure we'll go on together. Maybe it's artistic. Maybe it's an experiment. Maybe it's getting outside or helping the community. With us, you'll make a bunch of new friends and have a ton of new experiences that show you how exciting the world is, and how awesome you are, over and over again.


Girl Scout troops meet in places of worship, schools, and community centers during times that are best for the volunteers, parents, and girls. Girls can also join as Independent Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts earn badges, hike and camp, participate in the cookie program, and much more. They improve neighborhoods, protect the planet, design robots, and establish sports clinics. See what a great Girl Scout year can look like for each grade level by visiting Girl Scout GPS!

Girl Scout program starts girls off on a Journey of their choice from the National Leadership Journeys series. They'll earn awards, have fun, and take on projects that change the world.

Girls then add The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting to their program portfolio. The Girl's Guide offers girls national proficiency badges, traditions and history, an awards log, and much more. For complete information about what girls from kindergarten through high school do in Girl Scouts and the awards they can earn, please see the main program page. Girls now have three series of National Leadership Journeys to choose from!

It's Your World – Change It!

It's Your Planet – Love It!

It's Your Story – Tell It!


On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do—whether it's performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking simple meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply—is aimed at giving them the benefits of the Girl Scout "Keys to Leadership": Discover, Connect, Take Action. These are also available in our Bay Shops.
