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 with increasing understanding, skill and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills and cooperation with others.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Girl Scouts of North East Ohio strives to uphold the reputation Girl Scouts has as the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. Our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together through a number of programs that help them discover their passions and talents.

Girl Scouts is dedicated to providing a supportive environment for girls to learn by providing girl-led activities that promote cooperation and collaboration. Girls are able to participate in Girl Scouts in a multitude of ways—by joining a local troop, participating in a council-sponsored series program, attending summer camp or a local event, or becoming a virtual Girl Scout online. We want every girl to have the opportunity to explore her world and discover her passions, so we offer a number of programs to engage girls and keep them learning. These programs focus primarily on environmental awareness, STEM fields, community engagement, healthy living, financial literacy, the arts, and the outdoors.

Girl Scouts has developed the Discover, Connect, Take Action model that inspires girls to become leaders who understand themselves, are sensitive to the needs of others, and aren't afraid to change the world. Through the generous support of the community and the dedication of our adult volunteers, our council is able to provide many enriching opportunities that make up the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to tens of thousands of girls in northeast Ohio.
