Advocate

Inspire. Prepare. Mobilize.

Our time is now. This is our moment to come together, lift our voices, and take action on issues that matter to girls. Today is the day we unite to build an even brighter future for all of us.

At Girl Scouts, we focus on girls, building them to be (s)heros of tomorrow, and equipping them with resources to be active leaders in their communities. That’s why it’s important now—more than ever—to help girls empower themselves to be a positive force for change in the world and unleash their inner confidence to speak up on issues that matter most to them!

Be a Catalyst for Change

Research shows that “the public education system is not creating an adequate civic education foundation for all youth,” and a Girl Scout Research Institute poll found that just 38 percent of girls say their teachers have encouraged them to pursue politics and community leadership.

Be a catalyst for change in your community—and the world! Champion your views, influence leadership, and make the world a better place.

Ways to Get Civically Engaged

  • Join us for Girl Scouts Day at the Capitol 2023 offered virtually and with an in-person component this year. Advocates change the world every day, and you can be one of them. This is a great opportunity to learn how to use your powerful voice to get things done, no matter your age. Together we’ll explore ways to interact with elected officials to move your advocacy forward, we'll be inspired by amazing things advocates have done and we’ll learn how to how to take care of ourselves during our advocacy. This year we’re excited to bring back an in-person Day at the Capitol program as well. Register for one or both days.

  • Help girls grow their advocacy skills by checking out the advocacy resources from Girl Scouts of the USA.

  • Reach out to your elected official.
