We don’t just guess that our program is working, we know it is. Here’s why:
Each year, we randomly select Girl Scouts and troop leaders to answer survey questions about their Girl Scouts experience. Surveys measure specific outcomes (or results) in fifteen areas. These fifteen outcomes are supported by the Girl Scouts’ three keys to leadership: Discover, Connect, and Take Action. We also survey girls when they participate in short-term activities like camp as well.
All of these findings help us understand how we are helping to make a positive impact on the healthy development of girls, and where we may have room for improvement.
