Girl Scout Voices Count is a national survey of girls, parents or guardians, and troop leaders that is conducted each year by the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI), a group of researchers who work at Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA). At Girl Scouts, we care about your experience, good or bad, and we want to hear from you! The survey results help GSUSA and local councils figure out how to improve and grow Girl Scouts, so you can have the best Girl Scout experience.
