Girl Scout Leadership Experience

The Girl Scout program is fun with purpose, and is based on the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) where girls discover themselves, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place. Girl Scout activities take place within the safety of an all-girl environment where girls take the lead, learn by doing, and learn cooperatively.

 

All Girl Scout activities are tied to one of 15 short-term outcomes to ensure every girl receives a quality leadership experience. The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is what leadership "looks like" for girls and empowers them to:

Discover
  • Develop a strong sense of self
  • Develop positive values
  • Gain practical life skills
  • Seek challenges in the world
  • Develop critical thinking
Connect
  • Develop healthy relationships
  • Promote cooperation and team building
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Advance diversity in a multicultural world
  • Feel connected to their communities, locally and globally
Take Action
  • Identify community needs
  • Become resourceful problem solvers
  • Advocate for themselves and others
  • Educate and inspire others to act
  • Feel empowered to make a difference in the world

 

Transforming Leadership, a book published by GSUSA, outlines the Discover-Connect-Take Action framework of the 15 outcomes, and helps adults to understand how girls will benefit from the Girl Scout Leadership Experience now and in the future.
