Mission Statement:
Girl Scouting builds girls
of courage, confidence,
and character, whomake
the world a better place.
Published by Girl Scouts
of Kansas Heartland
Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland
serves more than 16,500
girls and adults in 80 Kansas
counties through its operational
headquarters inWichita, Kansas,
and regional offices in Emporia,
Garden City, Hays and Salina.
In celebration of 100 years of Girl Scouting, the Girl Scout Research
Institute conducted a large-scale study to assess the impact of Girl
Scouting on the lives of adult women today. There are an estimated 59
million living alumnae; nearly one in every two adult women in the United
States was amember of Girl Scouting as a girl.
Girl ScoutingWorks: The Alumnae Impact Study
finds that women who
were Girl Scouts as girls display positive life outcomes to a greater degree
than women who were not Girl Scouts.
This is the case for all Girl Scout
alumnae, across age/generations, social
classes, races, and engagement in other
extracurricular activities.
In addition, women who were in Girl Scouts for three or more years had
more positive outcomes, including the outcomes above as well as life and
relationship satisfaction, and leadership.
