Our Impact


From Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study:

Girl Scouts is the world’s premier leadership development organization for girls, with an estimated 59 million living alumnae. More than two-thirds of women listed in “Who’s Who in America,” two-thirds of female members of Congress, and 80% of female business owners are former Girl Scouts.

Women who were Girl Scouts are more likely to:

  • Be committed to community service and volunteerism, and make charitable donations
  • Be civically engaged and vote
  • Have achieved higher levels of undergraduate and post-graduate degrees
  • Have higher household incomes
  • Have higher self-confidence and feel optimistic about their futures
