Today's Girls, Tomorrow's Entrepreneurs
Girl Scouts is home of the largest entrepreneurship program for girls in the world. Entrepreneurship is a foundational element of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and a primary driver of Girl Scouts’ mission to create girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Girls today are already thinking like entrepreneurs. They are socially conscious problem-solvers and possess many traits we know are linked to entrepreneurial success.
Although girls express confidence in their ability to be entrepreneurs, they also identify challenges to getting started, including fear of risk and gender stereotypes. Girls need additional support and encouragement in the entrepreneurial space.
Through Girl Scout experiences, girls develop the attitudes, skills, and behaviors they need to succeed in life, giving them the courage to fail and keep trying, the tools to create an independent future, and the power to do good in the world.
Girls are ready—but are we prepared to support them? It's up to us to help pave their way forward and prepare the world for girls. Be an advocate for girls today.
