All-girl indoor & outdoor environment


Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah , Georgia , on March 12, 1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. With the goal of bringing girls out of isolated home environments and into community service and the open air; Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and studied first aid.

Within a few years, Juliette Low's dream for a girl-centered organization was realized. Today, Girl Scouts of the USA has a membership of nearly four million girls and adults, a significant growth from its modest beginnings nearly a century ago. In fact, more than 50 million women in the U.S. today are Girl Scout alumnae; 82% of our high-achieving alumnae credit the skills they learned in Girl Scouts for their success.

Program Highlights:

Girl Scout's highest priority is to promote the emotional, physical and mental health development of girls ages 5-17 regardless of her economic status or geography. By continuing to involve girls and women from all walks of life who represent many different roles in society, girls are encouraged to step forward and speak their mind of societal issues. Girl Scouts show girls that they are welcomed into the lives of real women, providing the opportunity for girls to imagine what their own lives could be like in the future in spite of the vastly different story they might see in society. We help strengthen girl's connections to mentors, parents and each other.

Support Services:

In addition to the traditional camps and other Girl Scouts activities, our council has several special programs that focus on community outreach for girls living in disadvantaged circumstances, preparing girls for the college experience, financial education, and self-esteem


Leadership development; goal setting; healthy living & active lifestyle; management, marketing and business skill-building; and many more
