The Impact of Girl Scouts

Children need a wide range of skills, behaviors and attitudes in order to work well with others, achieve their goals and be their best. Today, the Girl Scout Research Institute released findings that show how participation in Girl Scouts helps girls develop key leadership skills proven to help them achieve bright, successful futures.

Compared to their non–Girl Scout peers, Girl Scouts are more likely to be leaders because they:
  • Have confidence in themselves and their abilities (80 percent vs. 68 percent)
  • Act ethically and responsibly, and show concern for others (75 percent vs. 59 percent)
  • Seek challenges and learn from setbacks (62 percent vs. 42 percent)
  • Develop and maintain healthy relationships (60 percent vs. 43 percent)
  • Identify and solve problems in their communities (57 percent vs. 28 percent)
  • Take an active role in decision making (80 percent vs. 51 percent)

The most powerful part is that no matter where girls live or what their age or background is, Girl Scouts can help them develop to their full potential and excel in all aspects of life. There has never been a better time to stand with girls. And Girl Scouts is the best place to do it. If you believe there is power in every G.I.R.L.
