Outcomes and Processes

Three Girl Scout Processes

The three processes promote the fun and friendship that are integral to Girl Scouting, and help ensure the girls achieve the Outcomes. They are an essential ingredient in achieving the 5 outcomes.

Girl Led
Girl Led means that girls of every age take an active and grade-appropriate role in figuring out the what, where, when, why and how of what they do.

Learning by Doing
Learning by Doing is hands-on learning that engages girls in an ongoing cycle of action and reflection. When girls actively participate in meaningful activities and later reflect on them, they get a deeper understanding of concepts and mastery of skills.

Cooperative Learning
Cooperative Learning is designed to promote sharing of knowledge, skills and learning in an atmosphere of respect and cooperation as girls work together on goals that can only be accomplished with the help of others.

When girls participate in Girl Scouts, they benefit in 5 important ways:

Strong Sense of Self

Girls have confidence in themselves and their abilities and form positive identities.

Positive Values

Girls act ethically, honestly and responsibly and show concern for others.

Challenge Seeking

Girls take appropriate risks, try things even if they might fail and learn from mistakes.

Healthy Relationships

Girls develop and maintain healthy relationships by communicating their feelings directly and resolving conflicts constructively.

Community Problem Solving

Girls desire to contribute to the world in purposeful and meaningful ways, learn how to identify problems in the community and create action plans to solve them.
