“Girl Scouts is the greatest thing that has ever happened to us... my daughter Melissa, now 17, has learned lifelong leadership skills, and so have I... now I am teaching my younger daughter and other little girls how to 'change the world' one girl at a time!” Dawn McEvoy


Check out an overview of the Girl Scout experience here.

Imagine your daughter as a grown woman, among a new generation of leaders. She’ll tackle new challenges, defy barriers and make a difference. And she’ll do it with a foundation of leadership skills that she developed as a Girl Scout.

The Girl Scouts of Greater New York helps girls in all five boroughs -- including in a neighborhood near you -- develop the courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place. In Girl Scouts, your daughter will learn by doing. The learning is fun, inspirational, and cooperative, providing experiences girls can draw on today and throughout their lives.

Girl Scouts earn badges, hike and camp, participate in the cookie program, and much more. They improve neighborhoods, protect the planet, design robots, and establish sports clinics. 

Based on expert research and developed through years of experience, the Girl Scout program provides engaging and worthwhile activities that respond to the needs of today's girls, with flexibility that respects their busy lives - and yours!
