What we do

Why be a Girl Scout?

Girl Scouts encourages girls of all ages to discover, connect, and take action in their communities.

As a 21st-century girl, we recognize you want options. From healthy living to camping outdoors to arts and financial literacy, our diverse range of programs provide positive growing and learning experiences. Or discover the challenges and the fun of science, technology, engineering, and math in a supportive, all-girl environment where you don’t have to compete with boys for attention.

At Girl Scouts, it’s all about you. So, what did you do today?

No matter what level you are in Girl Scouts, the experience will be an adventure that will help you make discoveries along the way. There is something for every girl in Girl Scouting and an opportunity for you to build confidence and courage on every step of your path.

Cadettes (Grades 6-8, 6ème – 4ème)

Cadettes have more control of what they do as Girl Scouts and are encouraged to pursue individual and group goals. Girls at this level are making the transition from younger to teen Girl Scouting. Cadettes make nearly all decisions about their program, and take responsibility for raising the funds to pay for their activities. Meetings vary a great deal, depending on individual and group projects, which are more complex than younger levels of Girl Scouts. The meetings will involve learning about a topic or a concept, and then taking steps to improve the world through education or service.
Girl Scout Cadettes may earn the Silver Award, the highest achievement for Cadettes.
