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

“Girl Scouts gave me the leadership not to be afraid to try new things. I've never been afraid to fail. It's an attitude that Girl Scouts instilled in me - that you can be whatever you want to be.”
Marisa, Girl Scout Ambassador Troop 881
“As a Girl Scout I have learned skills like working with others and standing firm in what I believe. Girl scouts not only taught me what a leader is, it made me a leader.”
