As a Girl Scout you’ll get to participate in exciting activities, go on wonderful trips to far-off places, learn about new careers, create your own community improvement project, meet great friends, and help make the world a better place.


That's not all. You’ll learn about setting goals, managing money, and marketing by selling our famous and delicious Girl Scout Cookies.


Ultimately, you’ll gain the skills needed to join the next generation of leaders. Everything you’ll do—performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply—is aimed at helping you become a leader in your own life and make a difference in your community and the world.


At Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois, we are committed to providing the very best programming to our members.  Visit the site often – new programs are continually being added to our Calendar, or you can check out our Program Book.
