There’s a reason so many people of all ages and backgrounds support the more than 59 million girls in the Girl Scout movement. It’s because we’re changing the world for the better. We’re taking charge and working to make the world a better place day after day. Our mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character is rooted in tradition, yet still relevant today, and significantly impacting nearly 23,000 girls and 6,000 adult members in western Pennsylvania. Every volunteer, employee, and girl are important elements of the Girl Scout Movement. We work together to teach girls how to be confident in their leadership skills, how to work harder after a failure, and how to embrace the unfamiliar. 

Want to help power Girl Scouts to be champions of change? Join in on the Girl Scout Movement at Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania (GSWPA).
