About Us

We’re 2.7 million strong — 1.9 million girls and 800,000 mature volunteers that believe girls can transform the whole world. It began over 100 years ago having one woman, Girl Scouts’ creator Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, that believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and annually since, we’ve made her vision possible, helping girls find their strengths, passions, and gifts.

Today, as yesterday, we keep the Girl Scout mission of assembling girls of courage, confidence, and character that make the world a much greater place. We’re the pre eminent leadership development company for women. And with apps for girls from coast to coast and round the world, girlscouts offers every girl a chance to accomplish something astonishing.
