The mission of Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan and Girl Scouts of the USA is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
As such a large organization, Girl Scouts is occasionally a target for outside entities with clear agendas. A fundamental piece you should know is that Girl Scouts does not advocate one way or another with regard to what we perceive as private issues best handled by families. Personal matters are just that—personal and private—and should be addressed accordingly.
