Service(s) descriptionThe Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a collection of engaging, challenging, and fun activities that help Girl Scouts prepare for a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure. Our program is one-of-a-kind—it’s based on researched-backed programming with proven results. Everything a Girl Scout does centers around four pillars: entrepreneurship, life skills, STEM, and outdoors. The program grows as Girl Scouts age, ensuring they are building upon their knowledge and advancing in their pursued interests.
