Advocacy Programs

Girl Scouts inspires Girls to be leaders in their own lives by building the courage, confidence, and character to raise their voices and be advocates for the issues and ideas important to them. Girl Scouts use their determination to lead every day in the fight for a clean environment, equality, safety issues, local concerns, and much more. 

Girl Scout advocacy programs give your Girl Scout a chance to:

Explore issues that are important to her
Expand her network and meet community leaders, experts, and elected officials
Become inspired to make a difference 
Prepare to lead positive change through civic action

Discover the stories of women whose actions made a lasting difference for people around the world! Participants will watch a documentary based on a different advocacy theme each year, then talk with women who are currently working in a similar field to learn more about the issue and explore career options.

Camp CEO
