About Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland
Girl Scouts takes the potential of girls, combines it with robust skill-building programming, and adds caring adult mentors and strong female role models.
Everything a Girl Scout does centers around STEM, the outdoors, development of life skills, and entrepreneurship, and is designed to meet her where she is now and to grow along with her. Whether she’s building a robotic arm, coding her first app, building a shelter in the backcountry, or packing for her first hike, a Girl Scout has an exciting array of choices to suit her interests at every age.
At Girl Scouts, “Can I?” quickly turns into “I will!”
As girls transform their ideas into action, turn their questions into adventure, and grow their confidence through practice. And with more than 3,500 Girl Scout adults across the Ozarks to cheer them on every step of the way, there’s no limit to what she can accomplish.
Girl Scouts works.
It’s the best leadership experience for girls in the world for one very good reason: because it’s girl-led! Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment. Girl Scouts is a place where she’ll practice different skills, explore her potential, take on leadership positions—and even feel allowed to fail, dust herself off, get up, and try again.
The inclusive, all-female environment of a Girl Scout troop creates a safe space where girls can try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and just be themselves.
We need your help to make sure every girl in every zip code across the Ozarks has access to crucial, life-changing, girl-led programming that will launch her into a lifetime of leadership and building positive change—for her, for you, and for all of us. Help us power our promise.
