Girl Scouts is proven to help girls thrive in five key ways as they: 

  1. Develop a strong sense of self.
  2. Seek challenges and learn from setbacks.
  3. Display positive values.
  4. Form and maintain healthy relationships.
  5. Identify and solve problems in the community.

The Girls Scouts not only have a motto but a special hand hashake.

The Motto:T"Be prepared." In the 1947 Girl Scout Handbook, the motto was explained this way:

"A Girl Scout is ready to help out wherever she is needed. Willingness to serve is not enough; you must know how to do the job well, even in an emergency." The same holds true today.

Plus a Girls Scouts handshake is special, you shake with your left hand (because it is closest to your heart) will with your tight hand you hold up your 3 fingers.

If you have more then just cookies as an interest in the Girl Scouts there is a really cool event happening on March 12th! It's called "Mad Scientist Birthday Party for Girl Scouts!" This event sounds pretty awesome...
