21st Century Learning Skills

Girl Scouts works hard to ensure that we are preparing girls for every aspect of their lives.  Every program activity that Girl Scouts provides works specifically to achieve the Girl Scout National Leadership Outcomes.  These outcomes directly coincide with 21st Century Learning Skills which will help girls achieve greater success in school as well as in all other facets of their lives.

Each girl completes a survey at the end of their Girl Scout experience that measures their success and helps us determine what areas to focus on in the future.  The surveys are specifically designed to measure the girls on the Leadership Outcomes below.
