Parent Information

The Girl Scout Research Institute conducted a large-scale research study of both Girl Scout alumnae and women who had never been a Girl Scout as a child.

The study determined the impact of Girl Scouting is dramatic.

Women who were Girl Scouts as girls display positive life outcomes to a greater degree than women who were not Girl Scouts. These outcomes include sense of self, community service, civic engagement, education and income. And this is the case for all Girl Scout alumnae, across ages, social classes and races.

Girl Scouting works.

Girl Scouts gives you the opportunity to spend more quality time with your daughter, build lasting friendships with other adults and develop your own leadership skills.

You can get involved by:

  • attending parent meetings, group activities and special ceremonies
  • supporting the Cookie Program and Spring Product Sale to help your daughter grow financial literacy skills and to raise funds for camp and events
  • teaching girls a new skill
  • helping with troop meetings
  • becoming a volunteer!
