GSGLA Program Focus Areas
Girl Scout programs are based on the themes of leadership development, life skills and community service. They are girl-led, cooperative, and interactive, and each falls under one of five areas:
Arts & Culture
Girl Scouting opens up the world to girls and helps them develop their creativity, follow their instincts, and hone their skills. From theater and dance, to learning about traditions and customs from other hemispheres, these programs help to expand girls’ exposure to, awareness of, and appreciation for a wide variety of artistic expressions and diverse cultural experiences.
Business Smarts & Financial Literacy
Girl-led programs such as the Girl Scout Cookie Program, help girls build confidence while learning business and marketing skills, goal-setting, and public speaking. These financial education initiatives inspire a courageous entrepreneurial spirit and help increase a girl’s chances for success.
Environment & Outdoor Adventure
Girls are not only engaged in activity and exploration, but are also developing an appreciation for the great outdoors and its preservation. GSGLA camp adventures vary from mountain to coastline, and our “green” initiatives have sparked hundreds of impactful Girl Scout service projects.
Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM)
Girl Scouts has a strong history of developing pioneers in the fields of math, science, and technology. Through opportunities such as our champion robotics teams and the annual fall Family Science Festival, GSGLA encourages girls to explore and experience science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in an all-girl, supportive, and fun environment.
Wellness & Healthy Living
Childhood obesity, self-esteem, and body image are growing societal concerns and knowing that girls sometimes struggle with fitness and poor body image, we offer innovative programs in sports, nutrition, and health to instill positive health choices and encourage strength – physically and emotionally. Our programs encourage fitness, a healthy self image, healthy relationships, and an overall healthy lifestyle.
