Girl Scouts of all ages, from kindergarten through 12th grade, unleash their potential through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a series of engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, going on awesome trips, selling cookies, exploring science, getting outdoors, and doing community service projects.
Every Girl Scout has their own curiosity, dreams, and talents—so when they come together to decide which of the thousands of Girl Scout activities to try, the sky’s the limit. Whether visiting an animal shelter, camping, hosting a dance-off, or filming a movie—they’re learning to take risks, trust their gut, and team up with others for good. And they do it all with besties who’ve got their back.
Girl Scouts are placed in the appropriate Girl Scout level according to what grade they’re in at school. Girl Scouts can begin in kindergarten or join all the way through twelfth grade. Discover what Girl Scouts do at every age.
Girl Scouts have a blast. They know bringing the fun is all about being their true selves, trying new things, and cheering each other on.
Anyone can tell others what to do. A true leader can make smart decisions, act fairly and responsibly, and let others on the team shine as they work together. Whether it’s running their cookie business or directing a team of volunteers for a Gold Award project.
Take those badge skills further by completing a Journey or a Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award. A Journey award allows Girl Scouts to show they know how to take action and make a difference in their community. A highest award shows they know how to solve a problem, permanently.
