Scouting aims to teach girls values including honesty, friendliness, bravery, empathy, teamwork, and confidence, through activities such as community service and by earning badges and acquiring practical skills.
If your daughter would like to participate, registration will take place Saturday, August 30 10am-noon at Western Academy of Beijing. Parents from interested families will be asked to volunteer in their daughter’s troop.
USA Girl Scouts Overseas (USAGSO) serves American girls living overseas and girls attending American or international schools. Girls with foreign (non-Chinese) passports can join, and there are places available for kids from K-12.
USAGSO has been part of the national organization, Girl Scouts of the USA, since 1925. There are Girl Scout troops across China, in cities including Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Suzhou.
