Girl Scouts of Maine Future Leaders Scholarship

Girl Scouts of Maine is deeply committed to the development and empowerment of girls and young women to make the world a better place. Our goal includes helping to advance the next generation of women in senior leadership positions in the workplace, their community and their country. The world needs more leaders and only 20% of leadership positions are held by women.
