MISSION

The mission of Girl Scouts is to build a girls sense of courage, confidence, and character that will make the world a better place.

OBJECTIVE

The objective is to provide girls a safe and nurturing environment that will allow them to discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls working and growing together. Through numerous  enriching experiences, such as field trips, skill-building clinics, community service projects, just to name a few ,girls grow courageous, strong and confident in themselves and their abilities.  They go from an I can’t attitude to a why can’t I attitude.
