At Girl Scouts, we believe that when you invest in girls, you change the world. Girl Scouts discover their skills and interests, connect with supportive peers and adults, and make a positive impact in their community. Research shows that Girl Scout alums are more likely than their peers to achieve academically, earn higher wages, act as leaders in their community, and be satisfied with life. Every girl deserves these advantages, so we want every girl to have the opportunity to be a Girl Scout.
In our workplace, people of all cultures and backgrounds are valued, employee health and wellbeing are prioritized, and diverse ideas are encouraged. Teamwork, friendship, and community unite us as we change the world through small acts of kindness and big ideas.
