What We Stand For

First and foremost, the mission of Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri is to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.  Our focus is on building girls’ leadership, not a political agenda.

We want to supply Girl Scout volunteers and families with accurate information to respond to questions they might receive.  Below are some key facts.
  • Girl Scouts does not and has not endorsed any political party or politician.
  • There is no relationship—past, present or planned—between Planned Parenthood and Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri. In addition, Girl Scouts of the USA does not have a relationship or partnership with Planned Parenthood.
  • Girl Scouts does not take a position on reproductive issues. We believe these are matters that are best discussed within the family.
  • We feel our role is to help girls develop self-confidence and good decision-making skills that will help them make wise choices in all areas of their lives.
  • Girl Scouts actively encourage every girl to become a stronger member of her faith community.
Please read our Q&A document for additional answers regarding the false criticism and claims that have come to Girl Scouts from various sources.
