Make your case. Why Girl Scouts?

This cookie season you may be asked questions like, “How is Girl Scouts different from Boy Scouts?” or “What do you like about Girl Scouts?” or even “What do you think about Boy Scouts letting girls participate in its program?” Here are a few things you can say in response.

  1. Girl Scouts is the best leadership experience for girls in the world, period-designed specifically with, by, and for girls — every G.I.R.L.!
    Remember: Always stay positive. Don’t put other organizations down. Simply raise Girl Scouts up!
  2. Girl Scouts is fun with a purpose! Everything a Girl Scout does centers on four program pillars — science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the outdoors; life skills; and entrepreneurship — preparing girls for a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure.
  3. Girl Scouts is the only place where girls can work toward and earn the Gold Award — one of the most prestigious awards for girls in the world (and a great boost when it comes to applying for college and scholarships, establishing a lifetime network, and so much more)!
