Girl Scouts is offering girls even more opportunities to learn skills and prepare them to empower themselves with the experiences they need to succeed in life. Participation in Girl Scouts helps girls develop key leadership skills proven to help them achieve bright, successful futures. Compared to their non–Girl Scout peers, Girl Scouts are more likely to be leaders because they:
- Have confidence in themselves and their abilities (80 percent vs. 68 percent)
- Act ethically and responsibly, and show concern for others (75 percent vs. 59 percent)

- Develop and maintain healthy relationships (60 percent vs. 43 percent)
- Identify and solve problems in their communities (57 percent vs. 28 percent)
- Take an active role in decision making (80 percent vs. 51 percent)
The most powerful part is that no matter where girls live or what their age or background is, Girl Scouts can help them develop to their full potential and excel in all aspects of life.
