Focus on Leadership

Developing the leaders of tomorrow is our mission, and we work to ensure that all program offerings include components of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GLSE). Learn more about GSLE.

All programs are categorized under one of our four focus areas. The focus areas are S.T.E.M., Outdoors, Life Skills, and Entrepreneurship. Learn more about our Focus Areas.

Grade Levels and Progression

Activities for girls are categorized by grade levels. By offering program this way, we are demonstrating our commitment to progression in Girl Scouts – increasing competency to develop a skill over time as you grow. Learn more about grade levels and age-appropriate activities for your Girl Scout.
