Girls Are Having a Mental Health Crisis. You Can Help.
More than one in three girls feel extremely anxious and suicide rates are climbing. Here's how you can help.
Girl Scouts at Home provides engaging, family friendly activities that girls can complete safely at home or outside while social distancing with either no supplies or simple items that you might already have around the house.
There’s no need to have experience with the types of activities your girl chooses—at Girl Scouts, both girls and adult leaders learn by trying new things, discovering new skills and interests along the way.
And remember while she may need your support or guidance, Girl Scouts is specifically designed to work best when your girl takes the lead. Those times when she’s “in charge” of a project or activity—with you there to help if needed—making her own choices and bravely testing new skills? Those are the moments that will give her the independence, resilience, and sense of self she’ll need later in life.
