Girl Scouts encourages girls to value and be responsible custodians of natural resources within the community; and to become involved in environmental issues through conservation, environmental education, outdoor skills development and volunteer service.
Through Girl Scouting, girls explore education and career options in science, technology, engineering and math - fields with significant disparities between males and females. One of the organization’s goals is to build and reinforce girls’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math, and to support their continued involvement as they reach critical decision-making points to achieve parity in these fields.
Girl Scouts of the USA is the world's preeminent organization for girls, with a membership of more than 3.5 million girls and adults. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Chartered by GSUSA to provide Girl Scouting locally, Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is one of the largest Girl Scout councils in the country serving more than 64,000 girl members and 18,000 adults in 26 southeast Texas counties.
