Advocacy and Public Policy
Girl Scouts’ Office in Washington, DC
Our Public Policy and Advocacy Office works across party lines with Congress and the Executive Branch to educate and raise awareness about issues important to girls and young women. Through our efforts, we demonstrate to policymakers that Girl Scouts is a resource—and an authority—on issues affecting girls and Girl Scouting.
Every year, in partnership with our 111 Girl Scout councils, we develop a federal policy agenda (PDF) to advance key issues and promote leadership opportunities for girls, including:
Inspire Greater Civic Engagement and Civic Education
Strengthen Girls' Financial LIteracy and Business Skills
- Expand Girls' Access to Outdoor Exploration
Fuel Girls' Passion for STEM
- Uphold a Srong Nonprofit Community
A similar state policy agenda (PDF) is used by our Girl
Scout councils across the country to initiate dialogue on relevant
issues with their state public officials.
