What can we say? Giving back is in our DNA. Every day, in big and small ways, Girl Scouts are the G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders)™ who take action and build a better world for all of us. From harvesting community gardens they planted for food banks and running programs to fight bullying in schools, to cleaning local streams for future generations, and so much more, Girl Scouts consistently and relentlessly use their time and resources to enhance countless lives and communities across the map—they’re definitely a force to be reckoned with!

"I traveled this summer with my Girl Scout troop to Ecuador to help build a school in the Amazon for impoverished kids that have to walk five hours to get to school. I then created a video comparing the child poverty I saw in Ecuador to that in Oregon and Washington which I am using to educate people about the effects of poverty and its causes."
