Girl Scout of Frontier Council Charity Profile
Girl Scouting exists to serve girls. Girls have unique needs and interests that are best met in a program designed especially for them, delivered in an all girl setting. Girl Scouting provides opportunities to develop a sense of values and self-worth in a setting that provides girl/adult partnerships, leadership positions, progressive learning experiences and a safe and caring environment.
In Girl Scouts, girls develop courage, character and self-esteem. We provide girls with an array of age-appropriate learning opportunities that help them recognize and use their leadership skills and develop personal mastery. Girls are active partners with adults in choosing and leading programs, a critical path to leadership development. We strongly support efforts that help girls become leaders with a lasting sense of responsibility and accountability to their communities — local, national and global.
Girl Scouting is open to girls 5-17 years old, and to women and men over 18, who make the Girl Scout Promise, accept the Girl Scout Law and pay annual membership dues. These are the only membership requirements.
Girl Scouts actively reaches out to girls in urban, rural, low-income and public housing communities, to girls whose mothers are in prison or who are themselves living in correctional facilities, homeless shelters, foster care and domestic violence shelters. In addition, we have a long history of adapting activities for girls who have disabilities, special needs, or have other chronic illnesses.
