Getting Started
     Dear Girl Scout family,

     I’m so excited that you’ve decided to set a girl on a path to a lifetime of
     leadership, confidence and action! If you’re new to Girl Scouts — wel-
     come! If you’re back for another great year, I’m thrilled for you to join us
     again.

     Everything in Girl Scouting is part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience,
     and our programming in the areas of outdoors, STEM, entrepreneurship
     and life skills show girls how to:

       • Discover themselves, what they care about and what their talents
         are.
       • Connect with and learn from others locally and globally to expand
         their horizons.
       • Take action to make the world a better place.

     Your girl’s Girl Scout journey will help her identify and embrace her inner
     G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)TM — it’s in our DNA! She’ll
     have opportunities to be bold, creative and daring, while making new
     friends, learning from her peers and stepping out of her comfort zone in
     a safe, encouraging environment. Through Girl Scouts, she’ll get the tools
     to empower herself and determine her own path.

     Being a Girl Scout is a family affair! Moms, dads, siblings, grandparents
     and other family members can get involved through our activities that
     engage the whole family, as well as training opportunities that allow
     adults to expand their own skillset and share experiences with girls.
     You’ll also find opportunities at the community and troop level to engage
     with and support your girl’s experience!

     Whether your Girl Scout is a member of a troop or an independent Ju-
     liette, she’ll find adventure, learning and fun with this guide, and I can’t
     wait to take this journey with you!

     Let’s go!

What Daisies Do
     Daisies • Grades K-1
     Don’t we all wish we could look at the world through a Girl Scout Daisy’s eyes?
     Everything they do — from planting a garden to putting on a skit to proudly
     adding the first petal to their vest — sparkles with that “first time ever” new-
     ness! Along the way, they’ll use their Daisy exuberance to help others — and
     they’ll never forget how that feels. Every Daisy meeting is an adventure filled
     with giggles, energy and excitement.

What Brownies Do
     Brownies • Grades 2-3
     Girl Scout Brownies are ready to take on the world! They want to learn new
     things and show off what they know. They want to explore the world and meet
     new people. They get to do all these things and more in Girl Scouts: take that
     first hike in the great outdoors, visit a science museum, band together as a
     mighty Brownie team to sell cookies — and use some of money to help others.
     Life is good when you’re a Brownie!

What Juniors Do
     Juniors • Grades 4-5
     Want to meet a real-life superhero? Just talk to a Girl Scout Junior who wakes
     up every day ready to play a new role. They are explorers when they go camp-
     ing for the first time. They’re CEOs when they market and sell cookies. They’re
     scientists when they do energy audits and go on nature walks. And they’re
     product designers and writers when they earn their Innovation and Storytelling
     badges. Not to mention change-makers, big-idea thinkers and future leaders.
     Superhero, indeed!
