Girl Scouts

Imagine a new generation of leaders who lead in a new way. Who lead out of principle rather than pride. Who step across barriers of class and race every day. Who seek out the work that needs doing in the world. And who bring boundless energy to every challenge. Parents, read more about today's Girl Scout program here.

At Girl Scouts, our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Parents, read more about the Girl Scout mission here.

Program Levels 

The Girl Scout program is divided by grade level to meet the needs and abilities of each girl. At each level, the girls engage in activities that promote self-confidence, teamwork, and age-appropriate leadership all while having fun and making new friends.

 Girl Scout Daisies Grades K - 1
 Girl Scout Brownies Grades 2 - 3
 Girl Scout Juniors Grades 4 - 5
 Girl Scout Cadettes Grades 6 - 8 
 Girl Scout Seniors Grades 9 - 10
 Girl Scout Ambassadors Grades 11 - 12

Specific program focus areas include: leadership and self-esteem; community outreach and education; environmental awareness; financial literacy; health and wellness; science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the arts; and travel (day programs, camping, etc.)

Every girl who registers as a Girl Scout can enjoy many activities organized by her troop, service unit, and our local Council (Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana).
