Girl Scouts has been around for a long time. Although the organization is always evolving, the symbols that have come to represent it have not. People still associate Girl Scouts with cookies, badges, and friendship bracelets.

The truth is, Girl Scouts are groundbreakers. They program robots, start garage bands, and change their communities. A Girl Scout is a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)TM—and yes, these G.I.R.L.s are still selling the best cookies known to (wo)man.

Girl Scouts are prepared to take on challenges big and small in their lives—whether they’re breaking out of their comfort zone to try something new or making their dreams a reality. Girl Scouts lead through practicing grit, problem solving, risk taking, and leading with empathy.
