One of the most powerful results of living the Girl Scout Law is the ability to exercise and recognize true leadership. Being honest and fair, and courageous and strong; using resources wisely; respecting yourself and others; and making the world a better place. These are values that our staff and volunteers at the national and local levels continually teach, model, and reinforce. I am proud that for over 100 years Girl Scouting has produced and attracted so many examples of courage, confidence, and character in our girls and the adults who lead them.
