The Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) provides high quality research on topics related to the healthy development of girls. From healthy living habits to consumption of media, the GSRI seeks to understand what girls (both Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scouts) think and feel, and how Girl Scouts and the community can support girls' potential for success. Their research guides program development to deliver the highest program benefits to our members. We also strive to empower our community with the knowledge gained by making research data and reports readily available.
