The mound is 40 feet away, except in college and some traveling leagues where it is 43 feet. (fastpitch)
The pitchers mound is 40 feet from home plate with younger girl, 43 feet for older girls.

I was wondering how high the pitchers mound was in little league?
It is called a foul
Softball mound for girls that age is 35 feet.
It's to give the pitchers an advantage. Of course, these days, there isn't much of an advantage. Back in the 60s, it was raised (the mound was made higher) since the pitchers complained about the batter's advantage. Shortly thereafter, it was lowered to its present height due to the dominance of pitchers like Bob Gibson.
