Why Girl Scouts

Your Support Empowers New Mexico’s Girls 

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience encourages girls to take increasing responsibility for designing and implementing activities, resulting in extensive opportunities for them to see how their actions can impact the lives of others. 

At Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails, our girl-led programming sparks interest and cultivates leadership in the areas of STEM, Entrepreneurship, Outdoor Education, and Life Skills. These programs, powered by donors, focus on three key components for K-12 youth development: 

  • Discover: Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.  
  • Connect: Girls care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally.
  • Take Action: Girls act to make the world a better place. 

 As a result, New Mexico girls who engage in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience: 

  • Have a stronger sense of self 
  • Are more reflective of positive values 
  • Seek new challenges and learn from experience 
  • Form and maintain healthier relationships 
  • Become problem-solvers in their community  

Your support provides a safe space for girls to practice skills she’ll need to lead in every sphere of life. Your support helps girls prepare themselves to become the leaders of tomorrow, to see that their potential is unlimited, and to pursue their dreams.
