Whether it’s planting a garden, painting a mural, or launching a letter-writing campaign, Girl Scouts of all ages experience unique advocacy challenges, complete Take Action projects, and discover what it means to be a leader who makes a difference in the world.
It’s Your Planet—Love It!
Girls learn about environmental topics, such as clean water and air, noise pollution, global warming, soil contamination, and agriculture. Each Journey is packed with current environmental information and offers ways to improve life for everyone on the planet through a Take Action project.

Girls tell their stories through a range of creative approaches. Exploring important themes, such as developing a strong sense of self, navigating healthy relationships, and promoting well-being and confidence in themselves and others, gets girls involved in discussions about thinking critically and ready to complete a Take Action project.

Computer Science: Think Like a Programmer
Girls learn how programmers solve problems by participating in computational-thinking activities and completing a Take Action project.
Outdoor STEM: Think Like a Citizen Scientist
