The Girl Scout Research Institute conducted a large-scale research study of both Girl Scout alumnae and women who had never been a Girl Scout as a child.
The study determined the impact of Girl Scouting is dramatic.
Women who were Girl Scouts as girls display positive life outcomes to a greater degree than women who were not Girl Scouts. These outcomes include sense of self, community service, civic engagement, education and income. And this is the case for all Girl Scout alumnae, across ages, social classes and races.
Girl Scouting works.
