Overview for Girl Scout Leaders

Villari's can help you be safer & more confident!

Villari's Self Defense Centers supports the Girl Scouts in their mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character. We want to join you in making the world a better place that’s safer for everyone.

Villari's has experience equipping kids, teens, and young adults with skills to stop harassment, abuse, and assault, from verbal strategies to physical techniques. No matter your age or ability, you can take steps right now to feel safer and stronger.

Villari's has worked with dozens of local groups to empower girls to stay safe. We believe in a life of more confidence, more safety, more freedom, and more fun!

We want you to thrive as a Girl Scout! We can help you meet the requirements for many patches and badges, including:

  • Safety Awards for all levels (Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors). Villari's can help you stay safe at school, in your neighborhood, and online. We have lots of real-life safety skills to share.

  • Daisy Petals. Villari's can take your Daisy troop’s safety knowledge to the next level and help them earn their petals, too!

  • Gold, Silver, or Bronze Awards. Our self-defense workshops are a fantastic Gold, Silver, or Bronze Award project, and they have lasting impact. Villari's has helped Girl Scouts earn their Gold Awards by sharing skills for stopping harassment, abuse, and assault in their communities.
