What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Girl Scouts of Western Ohio exists to meet the needs of every girl in every neighborhood in a girl-centric and girl-driven environment. Girls grow courageous and strong through a wide variety of enriching experiences, such as field trips, entrepreneurship opportunities, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships. In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others in healthy and respectful ways; develop values to guide their actions and decisions; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
