New to Girl Scouts?

At Girl Scouts, “Can I?” quickly turns into “I will!” as girls transform their ideas into action, turn their questions into adventure, and grow their confidence through practice. And with more than 60 million other G.I.R.L.s to cheer them on every step of the way, there’s no limit to what they can—and will—accomplish.

Here we have collected a variety of resources to help you begin your journey with Girl Scouts.

New Leader's Guide

You—A Girl Scout Leader! 

Being a Girl Scout leader is an incredible journey along which you’ll shape the future by working with girls today. With your guidance, encouragement, and go-getting spirit, your Girl Scouts will be ready to embark on a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure. And along the way, you’ll hone your own leadership style and discover that you’ll achieve more than you thought possible! 

In Girl Scouting, leadership is about more than “being in charge” or having a title; it’s recognizing that you’re part of a team and understanding that team’s needs and interests.
