Who We Are
We’re 2.7 million strong—1.9 million girls and 800,000 adults who
believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker,
Leader)™ to change the world.
Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in girls’ ability to empower themselves and make a difference in their communities. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we’ve made her vision a reality, helping girls discover the strengths, passions, and talents.
Today, as yesterday, we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character,
who make the world a better place.
