What is Girl Scouting about?

Girl Scouts is the world’s preeminent girl leadership organization dedicated to creating girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. In partnership with committed adult volunteers, girls develop skills and qualities that will serve them throughout their lives. Girl Scouts learn leadership, strong values, social conscience and conviction about their own potential and self-worth.

Founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouts’ membership has grown from 18 members in Savannah, Georgia to 3.4 million members throughout the United States, including U.S. territories, and in more than 90 countries through USA Girl Scouts Overseas (serving girls with military parents deployed overseas).
