Community Service is one of the core values of Girl Scouting.  Volunteers and Girl Scouts of all ages are encouraged to participate in service projects that will have a real impact on their communities.  Girls can choose projects that reflect their own interests, large or small, and work as individuals or as a group.  It is especially important for all adult volunteers to coach girls on identifying local needs they care about and guide girls in reflecting on what they’re learning.  To apply the Discover, Connect, and Take Action keys, volunteers ensure that girls develop leadership values and skills while reaching out to others.  By continuing our long tradition of helping others, we can fulfill the Girl Scout mission in a visible way in our communities.

Making dreams a reality begins with knowing how to manage your money.  Living where you want, driving the car you love, starting a family, and traveling around the world, are possible for every girl who learns to manage her finances.  Wells Fargo has the tools and resources to teach all girls how to develop their financial literacy.  From Daisies on up to Ambassadors, the Wells Fargo Financial Literacy program will get Girl Scouts excited about learning how to manage a budget and save for the future.
