Think Globally.

Think Globally

Girl Scouts are exploring, discovering, and changing the world. 


It’s a great big world, and Girl Scouts everywhere are working to make it a better place. You can be one of them!

  • Whether you’re a Daisy or Brownie beginning to explore your neighborhood, a Cadette starting toward your Silver Award, or an Ambassador going for the Gold Award with a sustainable project that has global impact, you’re making a real difference.

    At Girl Scouts, there are so many ways for you to explore the world—on your own or with your troop, virtually or up close and personal.

  • "Girl Scouting and Girl Guiding can be the magic thread which links the youth of the world together."

Global Action Days
As a Girl Scout, you can take part in Girl Scout activities that relate to global issues affecting women and girls around the world. We emphasize nine international days of action—including World Thinking Day, World Environment Day, and International Day of the Girl—that rally you to take the lead to make the world a better place! 

World Thinking Day
Every year on February 22, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides from around the world come together to focus on one important topic that can change the world for the better. This year’s theme is Leadership. Find out how you can participate, and download our activity guides to spark some awesome ideas.
