You Help Girl Scouts CONNECT

  • gold-award_1920x1080
    Erin, Gold Award Girl Scout, Age 18

    “Because of Girl Scouts, I have been exposed to worlds that I hadn’t understood before. Helping and volunteering has helped make me become a better person, a better citizen, and a more understanding friend. “

    A Girl Scout of 13 years, Erin learned that she can be the change she wants to see in her own community. For her Gold Award project she developed an arts library with 600+ books and "artboxes" for her local children's hospital to entertain and inspire the creativity of young patients during their stay. 

  • luciana
    Luciana, Age 11

    “Girl Scouts helped me find my voice.” 

    Luciana learned that with a bit of courage and confidence she can sing her way to new heights! Her gender-norm breaking turn as Geppetta the puppet-maker in Pinocchio in a school version of the play had this Girl Scout Junior taking the stage by storm. Broadway better look out!

  • hadley
    Hadley, Age 6

    “There should be as many girl engineers as boy engineers.”

    While she may be young, she is MIGHTY! Hadley knows that in order to change the world one must also take part in engineering it. Despite not seeing as many females in her desired industry, that hasn’t deterred her from setting her sights on being an engineer when she grows up, and she looks forward to being the example for other girls just like her!


You Help Girl Scouts DISCOVER

  • bella-gt18
    Laura (Mother of Bella, Girl Scout, Age 9)

    "Before [Girl Scouts] camp, my daughter wasn’t one to say ‘Hi, my name is Bella, who are you?’ Now she does. She really has been inspired by her Girl Scout experience."

    Laura has seen firsthand how the welcoming environment of Girl Scouts has helped her daughter Bella to flourish as she started connecting to her inner self! No longer the shy young girl waiting to see what others were going to do first, Bella took her first camp experience without her fellow troop members as the chance to learn that she could be as bold as she wants to be!

  • amanda
    Amanda, Age 14

    "I am proud to be a Girl Scout!"

    Moving even further beyond the idea that Girl Scouts is just the place for cookies and crafts, there are girls like Amanda who found the support she needed to push through some really difficult times. At one point, when she was struggling to find her place and work through feelings of depression, Amanda found the friendship, support and sisterhood she needed in Girl Scouts. She also learned valuable life and coping skills.

  • CarlieReal
    Carlie, Age 15

    "Girl Scouts allowed me to be a role model."

    Carlie has no problem with calling it how she sees it; and she calls herself a feminist. She is boldly demanding equality and knows that there is room for EVERYONE to succeed. Her Girl Scout experience has been one where she can uplift the sisterhood further. She’s a force to be reckoned with and she’s ready to see more women taking charge and leading the way forward!


You Help Girl Scouts TAKE ACTION

  • ela
    Ela, Age 11

    "I encourage younger people to do good things. You can make a big difference in the world."

    Ela didn’t take for granted the idea that change starts within and radiates outward. When she realized that other kids in her school didn’t have lunches, she started to share her own. While food often brings us together, so too do Girl Scout cookies! Ela used proceeds from her cookie sales to create and partially fund a hot lunch program at her school that provides a warm and nutritious meal to other kids in need. 

  • eva-1920x1080
    Eva, Age 20

    “Help other people acquire knowledge, so that we can be free ourselves.”

    Activists TAKE ACTION. Girl Scout alum Eva has done that and more. A Chicagoan championing for the fair treatment of all, she has worked within her community to elevate the voices of the marginalized to greater heights. As the founder of Youth for Black Lives, Eva has led peaceful protests in the city and spoken at the United Nations in New York to advocate for the organization’s mission. 

  • gold-award_1920x1080
    Kaitlin, Gold Award Girl Scout, Age 18

    “Through earning my Gold Award, I learned what it was like to manage a program and take on a huge leadership position!”

    Kaitlin took her love for music and shared it with others on a grand scale (piano included!). While working on her Girl Scout Gold Award project she created a wall mural, two events, a music video, and a private lesson program to increase the number of students continuing in band from middle school to high school. As a result of her program, the retention rate of band students increased 15%!


You are an important part of our Girl Scouts' stories. When you give on #GivingTuesday, you give girls access to a welcoming space where they can be themselves and thrive. When girls have a community that roots for them to succeed, there’s no telling what they can achieve!
