Mission

As the preeminent leadership experience for girls in K-12, Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Programs and Services

  • Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania (GSWPA) is committed to ensuring that all girls develop to their full potential. For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts has had a successful track record of providing outstanding, transformative leadership development opportunities for girls.
  • Through the adult mentorship provided by adult volunteers, the cultural experiences provided through both domestic and international travel; as well as the self-discovery and personal growth gained through camping; and financial literacy gained through participation in the Girl Scout Cookie Program; Girl Scouting has helped girls learn to make healthy choices, build strong self-esteem, and develop and exercise strong leadership skills.
  • Serving nearly 22,000 girls in 27 counties, Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania is the organization best positioned to offer girls the tools they need to be successful leaders now and throughout their lives. Our programs are innovative, inclusive, and girl-centered – with regional community, volunteer, donor, and family support and recognition of its leadership significance to girls and their future. The ultimate goal of these programs is to open doors of opportunity.
  • Through our outdoor programs at camp, academic programs during and after school, and participation in the Girl Scout Cookie Sale program, our girls are learning valuable life skills such as: STEM; Academic success through community service; Financial Leadership/Entrepreneurship; Environmental Stewardship; Leadership and Professional Development. These skills prepare girls for their future and help them grow into strong, successful young women
  • Girl Scouts benefit from our program in 5 important ways: 1. Girls have confidence in themselves and their abilities; 2. Girls act ethically and responsibly, and show concern for others; 3. Girls take appropriate risks, try new things even if they might fail, and learn from mistakes; 4. Girls develop and maintain healthy relationships by communicating their feelings directly and resolving conflicts constructively; 5. Girls desire to contribute to the world in purposeful and meaningful ways.
