We have identified Three Keys to Leadership: girls Discover themselves and their values; Connect with others;
and Take Action to make the world a better place. At Girl Scouts, everything centers around the girl: activities
are girl-led, which gives girls the opportunity to learn by doing in a cooperative learning environment.
We're celebrating a century of trailblazing, leadership, fun, and friendship-and we're just getting started.
Connect with Girl Scouts of the USA at www.girlscouts.org, www.facebook.com/GirIScoutsUSA,

learning opportunities, tips, and advice at www.gsmanitou.org.
What will the next century bring? More of what Girl Scouts is known for, of course! And we're also rallying the nation around the cause of girls' leadership.
We know you've seen girls back down, opt out, and shy away from leading. You may have seen girls bullied by their peers, pressured by industries that celebrate unattainable beauty, and encouraged not to pursue science and math. You may have even struggled to explain to girls why women are in only 17 percent of seats in the U.s. Congress and 3 percent of the top positions at Fortune 500 companies.
We believe that, together, we can do better for girls, setting in motion a generational change, so that every girl born today blossoms into her full potential, whether that's running a science lab, running a corporation, or running a household. Together, we can transform the leadership landscape, so that every girl, in every zip code, stands up, stands out, and stands tall. Together, we can get her there.
That's why we created ToGetHerThere, a cause that partners Girl Scouts with nonprofits and leading corporations under a bold and ambitious banner: achieve gender-balanced leadership-in every industry and every community-in a single generation.
