    Description

    With neighborhood organization, program flexibility, and child participation in the planning and implementation of activities, the Girl Scout program is designed to be highly responsive to the varying needs of individual groups of girls. There is no fixed agenda or focus on a single aspect of environmental education. Instead, the Girl Scout concept of total environment encourages activities that place equal emphasis on projects fostering development of self, community involvement, and a variety of outdoor experiences. The Girl Scout movement has both strengths and weaknesses as a vehicle for environmental education.
