The Girl Scout’s mission is to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. The Girl Scout program is girl-driven and dedicated to teaching girls how to recognize their own potential, understand personal responsibility, focus on goal-setting and experience the thrill of accomplishment. Girls can strive to earn patches as they accomplish goals and tasks assigned to certain activities. Some topics of interest covered by the Girl Scout program include leadership and self-esteem, health and wellness, science, technology, engineering and math, the arts and travel and the environment.
