Girl Scouts promise "to help people at all times". Girl Scout leaders work with girls to teach them to be active and responsibile citizens in the community. Older girls develop leadership skills by working with younger girls to complete service projects. Here's a sample of service projects where the girls made a difference in someone's life.
