    I loved my experience with Girl Scouts USA, they help give girls confidence to stand on their own two feet.

    I have been working at Girl Scouts USA as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    They are a great organization, with the values that young girls need in this society. They teach girls to be strong, independent, and self-confident. I highly recommend working for this organization if you can.

    Cons

    The only downside that I can really think of is that if you work at summer camp, you lose your free time for that summer. You get one day a week off, but it is hard to do anything spectacular in a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you do
