S'more News Summer 2017! - Page 7

At the start of 2017, Girl Scouts of the USA launched a new branding effort and revealed

to us the power of G.I.R.L. (Go-Getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™!

This new brand platform was built to emphasize the types of experiences girls have through Girl Scouting. It defines leadership the Girl Scout way. G.I.R.L. is the literal expression—the essence—of our Girl Scout attitudes, values, and history.

But what does “G.I.R.L.” truly mean aside from being catchy and colorful? Great question! Take a look at what each letter in G.I.R.L. represents and how our Girl Scouts and volunteers are already living these values every day:

GO-GETTER: Determined to succeed. Bold. Honest. Fair. Goal-oriented.

Can-do mentality. Ambitious. Lifelong learner.

INNOVATOR: Creative. Thinks outside the box. Always looking for a new approach. Visionary. Uses resources wisely. Original. Do-it-yourselfer.


RISK-TAKER: Not afraid to try new things. Courageous. Strong. Breaks the mold. Steps up. Discoverer. Pioneer. Embraces the unfamiliar.

LEADER: Confident. Knows how to get the job done. Responsible. Committed to making the world a better place. Empathetic. Advocate. Empowers others.

We as Girl Scout members know that Girl Scouts show grit like a go-getter, problem

solve like an innovator, embrace the new like a risk-taker, and display empathy like a leader. Through this rebranding effort, GSUSA hopes to reinforce and more clearly communicate our position as a safe, girl-focused envionment where we prepare them to practice a lifetime of leadership through access to thousands of girl-led experiences and skill-building opportunities!
