About Girl Scouts
Founded by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912, Girl Scouts is dedicated to helping girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives, like leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth. More than 50 million American women have enjoyed Girl Scouting during their lifetime - and that number continues to grow as Girl Scouts continues to inspire, challenge, and empower girls everywhere.
"The original purpose of Girl Scouting, as summed up by Mrs. Low, has remained the same through the years, although the program, originated for changing youth in a changing world, is constantly being studied and altered."
