How Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas (GSSWT) is committed to empowering girls in grades K-12 to discover, connect, and take action by engaging stakeholders to provide relevant and quality girl-led experiences through flexible Girl Scout Pathways. By participating in GSSWT programming, a generation of girls will be better positioned to fuel the pipeline of female leadership. Girl Scout alumna are more likely to have a stronger sense of self, pursue higher education, be satisfied with life and in relationships, and are more likely to be leaders and active in community service and volunteer work. Studies show that the development of attitudes, behaviors and skills like confidence, conflict resolution and problem solving are critical to well-being and rival academic and technical skills in their capacity to predict long-term positive life outcomes. For girls to lead with courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place, GSSWT facilitates programs that support participants in developing a strong sense of self, displaying positive values, seeking challenges, learning from setbacks, forming and maintaining healthy relationships, and identifying problems in the community and possible solutions.
