Once a Girl Scout, Always A Girl Scout

CEOs. Scientists. Athletes. Artists. Mothers. Leaders.

Two-thirds of the most successful women were Girl Scouts. Approximately one in every two adult women in the U.S. has at some point been a member of girl Scouts. And it’s no coincidence that the majority of our nation’s female leaders and business owners were once Girl Scouts.

Girl Scout alumnae are proof that Girl Scouts is developing tomorrow’s leaders.

• 92% of female astronauts were Girl Scouts
• 68% of all Congresswomen were Girl Scouts
• 80% of all female business owners were Girl Scouts

“Girl Scouts gave me a sense of adventure and the courage to pursue new interests that I wouldn’t have tried otherwise, like horseback riding. It was frightening at first and I was nervous, but I felt a sense of pride when I accomplished it.”

Marisol, Girl Scout Ambassador Troop 2849

“As I evolved from a Brownie to an Ambassador, so did my values and skills. I have become an open minded person who has mastered public speaking, which has led me to fight for what I believe in and share it with others.”
