What is Girl Scouting?
Girl Scouting is a worldwide movement that provides girls and young women, aged 4 to 21 years old, a non-formal educational program based on character development and the ideals of service. The Movement is open to girls and young women of diverse race and religion and cuts across social barriers. Membership is voluntary. The Movement is non-political and non-sectarian. It is independent and non-governmental and helps in nation-building through efforts pertaining to the home, school, church, government units and other agencies. While girls are the focus of the Movement, the adult volunteers also enjoy many stimulating opportunities by serving the Movement. These volunteers hold ultimate responsibility for the Movement. Self-training through enriching experiences in Girl Scouting influences girls and young women into becoming change agents who are responsible, decisive, useful, respected and acknowledged citizens in a changing world.
