The Leadership Institute, Powered by Girl Scouts of Greater New York


For 2020-2021, the Leadership Institute’s Cohort 2021 program will run virtually. Girls who apply and are accepted for the Cohort 2021 program will begin in December. They will have opportunities to participate in subject-specic camps, peer committees, girl-led and professional-led workshops, college visits, internships and job shadowing, virtual panels with accomplished and diverse professional women, academic scholarships, and so much more!

The Leadership Institute is open to any girl in grades 6-12 who lives in New York City or registered with a NYC-based troop; prior Girl Scouting experience is not required.


All girls accepted into this program will learn how to power up their leadership skills and gain significant access to successful women role models.

We’re excited to deliver this program designed to foster a new generation of leaders who take action with courage, confidence, and character to drive systemic changes and reform in their communities and, ultimately, the world at large.
