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
