Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study
July 17, 2012
In celebration of 100 years of Girl Scouting, the Girl Scout Research Institute conducted a large-scale study to assess the impact of Girl Scouting on the lives of adult women today. There are an estimated 59 million living alumnae; nearly one in every two adult women in the United States was a member of Girl Scouting as a girl.
Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study finds that women who were Girl Scouts as girls display positive life outcomes to a greater degree than women who were not Girl Scouts. These positive outcomes include:
- Self of self
- Community service
- Civic engagement
