Join Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts may look different than it did a few short weeks ago but make no mistake: Girl Scouts is not cancelled. Girls and families need the support, consistency, and community Girl Scouts River Valleys can provide, now more than ever.

At Girl Scouts, the next opportunity to stand up, speak up, and take the lead is never far away. With us, you’ll unleash your inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader)™! Girl Scouts is open to all girls in grades K-12.

Girl Scouts at Home – Virtual Programming

Girls need Girl Scouts now more than ever. Check out our Girl Scouts at Home webpage for links to virtual programs and online resources to support girls in grades K-12. Girls can earn all or part of a badge during a program and then purchase badges and have them shipped to their home (for free!). Virtual programs are offered weekly on Facebook Live and through Zoom.

Resources for Supporting Girls During COVID-19

During this time of social distancing and school closures, we will continue to post a variety of tips, resources, and activities that families will find helpful while at home. Check out our In the Loop blog posts.

Why Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts is the place for every girl. And it always will be.

Girl Scouts River Valleys is committed to creating an environment where all girls have the opportunity to participate in a movement that encourages them to overcome barriers and become leaders in their community and world. We’re working hard to give all girls the opportunity to practice a lifetime of leadership by becoming Girl Scouts. With us, you’ll unleash your inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader)™!

Research shows that girls want, and thrive in an all-girl, and girl-friendly, environment where their specific needs are addressed. Girl Scouts are leaders in their communities when they create sustainable projects like building bat houses, increasing traffic safety near schools, and providing comfort to pediatric patients during recovery.

Regardless of her race, class, or religion, every girl has a home at Girl Scouts.

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience

Girl Scouts is the best girl leadership program in the world. Our program centers on what we call the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, or GSLE—a collection of engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, going on awesome trips, selling cookies, exploring science, getting outdoors, and doing community service projects.

At Girl Scouts, she’ll get to lead her own adventure and team up with other girls in an all-girl environment to choose the exciting, hands-on activities that interest her most. Along the way, she’ll gain important skills in four areas that form the foundation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience:

  • Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)
  • Outdoors
  • Life Skills
  • Entrepreneurship
