On the Spring 2012 Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) Survey, girls were asked: "what do you like best about being a Girl Scout?"
One Ambassador from Huron County said:
"I like being able to choose from a wide variety of activities in which to participate, and how the new Journey requirements relate to things I'll be doing in real life."
A Junior from Lake County said:
"I get to be part of a group that makes the world better."
Daisies and Brownies listed some of their favorite activities as: planting flowers, getting to help the community, camping & exploring and making birthday boxes for the food pantry.
The following results are from the Fall 2011 GSLE Surveys.
Girl Scouts Advance Diversity......
81% of Cadettes agree, to some extent, that Girl Scout Groups lose out when girls from different cultures are not included.
Girl Scouts Develop Teambuilding Skills.......
Over two thirds of Juniors surveyed strongly agree that participating in Girl Scouts has made them a better team member.
Girl Scouts Become Leaders......
About 90% of Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors surveyed say that they have been a leader in more activities with their friends, class or community because of their Girl Scout Experience.

Girl Scouts of North East Ohio invites girls and volunteers to share their thoughts and feelings about their experiences in Girl Scout sponsored programs. To give girls the best programs possible, we are interested in understanding whether girls are enjoying Girl Scout activities, understanding new materials, and ultimately, how the programs are benefiting them.
