Educators and Girl Scouts

Stronger Together

Girl Scouts complement the indispensable work you do as an educator every day. Girl Scouts offer a one-of-a-kind, proven leadership development program that pairs girls with strong, caring role models and mentors who prepare them to take the lead from age 5 to 18, and into adulthood.

Our flexible, customizable and ready-to-implement programming exposes girls to experiences in STEM fields, entrepreneurship, life skills, financial literacy, and the outdoors—all in a safe, girl-led environment. Girl Scouts are encouraged to try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and feel comfortable failing and dusting themselves off.

The best part is that every experience and skill that we can offer students right now will continue to help them be successful at school, and in life, when it’s time for us all to come together in-person again.

Research shows  that Girl Scouts are more likely than non-Girl Scouts to achieve academic excellence, and overachieve when it comes to teamwork, hands-on learning and reflection, and decision making.

That’s because we understand the vital connection between young girls’ development and have a direct correlation to their future success.

Learn more about how participation in Girl Scouts is statistically linked to higher grades and positive behavioral engagement in school.

Our Collaboration with the National Education Association

Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) has teamed up with the National Education Association (NEA) to provide members with easy-to-access educator resources and volunteer opportunities with local Girl Scout councils. After all, we’re the perfect fit!

Both Girl Scouts and educators are deeply committed to girls’ education and development, and your distinctive expertise and experience will make a world of difference to girls in your area. Let’s build a better world for girls and for all of us, together.

Girl Scouts and Faith

Celebrating Spirituality and Faith

Everything in Girl Scouting is based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law, which include many principles and values that are common across religions. Because we understand that religious instruction is at the center of many families and communities, we invite community Faith Partners to take Girl Scouts on spiritual journeys via their faith’s religious recognition. Girl Scouts is welcoming and inclusive to members of all faiths.

See how you can become a Girl Scout Faith Partner by downloading the flyers below. For questions. contact us here.
