The Girl Scouts of Chicago are part of the largest all-girl organization in the world. It is open to girls from ages 5 to 17. The mission of the Girl Scouts is to help girls develop to their fullest potential and to become competent, resourceful women. It enables them to acquire the skills and talents to overcome barriers that limit girls’ achievements. The program produces skills for good citizenship, positive self-image, leadership, decision making and resourcefulness. The girls also learn to give service to others.
