The mission of the Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts is a leadership development experience designed to help girls discover their personal best and prepare for a positive future, connect with others in an increasingly diverse world, and take action to solve problems and improve their communities.

2007 marks the 95 th anniversary of Girl Scouting in the United States . Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts is the preeminent organization for girls with 3.7 million girl and adult members worldwide. The first Girl Scout troop in Rhode Island met in Pawtucket in 1914. In 1919 GSRI was chartered by the Girl Scouts of the USA and incorporated under Rhode Island law. In 2006, we served 12,212 girls and 2,994 adults in 45 communities. In 2007, 8 more Massachusetts towns became part of our council.
