The Girl Scout Difference

For 102 years, Girl Scouts of Hawai‘i has offered the best leadership development experience for girls in the world—one that is designed with, by and for girls.

Our Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a one-of-a kind program, with proven results, time-tested methods and research-backed programming. Girl Scouts take the lead in their own lives and in the world to:

  • Develop a strong sense of self
  • Display positive values
  • Seek challenges and learn from setbacks
  • Form and maintain healthy relationships
  • Identify and solve problems in the community

Everything a Girl Scout does centers around STEM, the outdoors, development of life skills, and entrepreneurship, and is designed to meet her where she is now and to grow along with her.


When you invest in girls, you invest in all of our futures. Help us ensure that every girl in Hawai‘i develops the confidence that Girl Scouts nurtures. An investment in Girl Scouting is broader than a cause or a cure. It is a commitment to the next generation of self-sufficient and capable women. Make an enormous difference in the lives of thousands of girls in our community. Become a Partner in Leadership and commit your unwavering support to Girl Scouts of Hawai‘i.
