Program Summary: The Girl Scout Outreach Program supports leadership development for approximately 800 girls living in high-risk communities through age-appropriate activities—weekly for 90 minutes after school throughout the school year—guided by supportive adults. Through skill-building activities, girls develop attitudes, behaviors and skills like confidence, conflict resolution and problem solving that are critical to well-being and becoming responsible, productive, caring and engaged citizens. 

The girls served live in low-income neighborhoods in Jackson County and face the greatest risk for substance abuse, violence, deliquency  and dropping out of school due to multiple factors associated with racial inequality as well as gender and economic inequity. The Girl Scout program mitigates these risk factors through experiences and activities grounded in best practices in youth development and linked to the Search lnstititues 40 Development assets, including positive values, social competencies and positive identity, which are related to reducing risky behaviors and increasing outcomes (prosocial behavior, leadership and resilience).
