About

Girl Scouts of Alaska is the proven leadership development program for girls in grades K-12. Girl Scouts provides a safe, inclusive environment for Alaska’s diverse population of girls, regardless of income or socioeconomic background.

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together.

Through a myriad of enriching experiences – such as troop membership, camps and outdoor education, workshops and events, and financial literacy skills gained through the Girl Scout Cookie Program – girls grow courageous and strong.

Girl Scouting helps girls:

  • Develop their full individual potential;
  • Relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect;
  • Develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and
  • Contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.

Building on the traditional values of the Girl Scout movement, we meet the needs of girls in Alaska today.
