The Case for Girl Scouts


Based on the 2017 State of Girls Report, a report from the Girl Scout Research Institute, North Carolina is currently ranked 41st in the nation, and South Carolina is 40th, based on national measures of girls’ well-being.

Now more than ever, it is imperative that we invest in girls. As the largest girl-serving organization in the world, Girl Scouts is committed to ensuring that all girls develop to their full potential. It is our job to provide them with leadership experiences for discovering the world around them, connecting to supportive adults, and taking action in the world now and in the future. Statistics are not destiny!

Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, girls are equipped with the skills, passion and ability to be successful leaders as they recognize a sense of self, learn positive values, become challenge seekers, develop healthy relationships and contribute to the community and beyond. At Girl Scouts, Hornets’ Nest Council, we seek to serve every girl, everywhere, regardless of socio-economic or cultural barriers may exist. We help jumpstart girls' journeys by equipping them with necessary skills and ability to be impactful leaders. Your support will help girls participate in the premiere leadership organization. 

As a community, let’s continue to go beyond to improve the state of girls across our footprint.
