Girl Scouting is where today's girls can become tomorrow's leaders. Membership in Girl Scouts is open to all girls in grades K - 12; women and men over 18 can join as adult volunteers. The Girl Scout leadership experience is based on the needs and interests of girls. Most girls join a Girl Scout troop for fun and friendship, but they also find out about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities—the core qualities of Girl Scouting. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
