Girl Scout Leadership Institute
The Girl Scout Leadership Institute (GSLI) is where a lot of the magic of the Girl Scout National Convention happens! It is a triennial conference that provides girls 14 and older with three days of leadership skill-building activities tied to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE). Girls tell us they want to make a real difference in the world, so GSLI 2023 will focus on big issues that girls across the country and around the globe are passionate about.
The GSLI experience will give each girl the opportunity to make new friends, develop important skills, learn about new planning processes, and take advantage of a support system that will be there to meet her needs—all in a fun and engaging way.
Our council strives to make Girl Scouting available to all girls. Girls and their families may apply for an Opportunity Fund to help pay for their participation in Girl Scouts.
