I am so excited about our Thinking Day theme!!! 
As GS Leaders, we are here to equip, prepare, and make ready 
our strong, independent, beautifully designed, simply unique little women!
Our girls have something special to give to our world...
as GIRL SCOUT LEADERS we have been
assigned a very important role in these
young, little woman's lives!
We are not here to change these amazing girls,
we are here to help them make a change in this world!


Take the Lead Like a Girl Scout!

When she's a Girl Scout, she’s also a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™.

When you think Girl Scouts, you might think cookies, campfires and friendship bracelets. And sure, those things are all part of this exciting, life-altering journey, but there’s so much more to it!

Girl Scouts are big thinkers, groundbreakers, and role models. They design robots, start garage bands, and improve their communities—and yes, they sell the best cookies on the planet. 

Every day, Girl Scouts unleash the power of G.I.R.L. to make amazing things happen.



She’s bold, honest, and determined to succeed. In her mind failure is no reason not to get back up and try again, and again, and again. That explains why half of all U.S. businesswomen were Girl Scouts. 



Thinking outside the box is her specialty, so she’s always looking for a creative way to take action. A clear correlation: 75 percent of current female senators were Girl Scouts. 



Courageous and strong, she’s keen to try new things and embrace the unfamiliar. It's no wonder that nearly all of the 40 women who have flown in space were Girl Scouts.



She’s confident, responsible, and committed to changing the world. Here's proof: Every year, Girl Scouts collectively spend more than 75 million hours improving their communities.


These traits define girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. This is the Girl Scout DNA.

It could be part of your DNA, too—whatever your age, gender, or background. The only question is, are you ready to take the a Girl Scout?
