Girl Scouts is the world’s preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adults, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives: strong values, leadership, social conscience, and conviction of their own potential and self-worth. If the church does not provide a platform for these girls then the streets will.
