Girl Scouts Are Global Citizens

Across America, hundreds of thousands of Girls Scouts are helping to change the world. Girl Scouts are committed to being leaders and Global Citizens.

The Girl Scouts program promotes a message of empathy by promoting awareness of the world outside of one’s own city, state, and country. When we place ourselves in other people’s shoes and strive to understand positions that may differ from ours, we become better global citizens.

Through girl-led, hands-on learning experiences that engage and educate, Girl Scouts provides opportunities for girls to explore solutions to global issues and take action to impact the causes they care about.

Global Citizen and the Girl Scouts share a vision of a world where every girl can go to school.

Together, we can improve conditions for girls and women everywhere by standing up against human trafficking and violence against women and girls. We fight for quality sanitation, STEM education for girls, and economic self-sufficiency for all women.

Girl Scouts’ newest initiative called the G.I.R.L. Agenda makes it simple to access civic engagement resources that are tailored to prepare every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to stand up for what they believe in. The tools provide a roadmap for people to take action in ways such as challenging unfair policies, mobilizing communities to support important causes, and meeting with public officials and community leaders to educate them about key issues.

By making age-appropriate resources based on GSUSA’s proven programming accessible to all, the G.I.R.L. Agenda will give hundreds of thousands of girls and adults tangible ways to take civic action related to topics of their choosing.

Empowering all Global Citizens starts with empowering women and girls. Take Action! Become a Global Citizen today and support a world with equal opportunity for girls.
