In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills and cooperation with others.


The Girl Scout organization was founded by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912 in Savannah, Ga. In 1911, Juliette made her historic telephone call to a friend (a distant cousin), saying, “I’ve got something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America, and the entire world, and we’re going to start it tonight!” On March 12, 1912, Juliette Low gathered 18 girls to register the first troop of American Girl Guides. Margaret “Daisy Doots” Gordon, her niece and namesake, was the first registered member. The name of the organization was changed to Girl Scouts the following year.

Following the start-up of the first troop by Juliette Gordon Low, the second troop in the country was formed in 1913 right here in the city of Tampa at Hyde Park United Methodist Church. The troop was led by Jessamine Flowers Link, and a historical marker in front of the church attests to the honor.

Support Services:

The Girl Scout program is primarily delivered by volunteers who donate their time and talents to provide the girls with incredible opportunities.
