100 years
of investing in girls
The Past
In 1912, Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low gathered 18
girls together in Savannah, Georgia to begin a tradition that
would eventually be replicated inmillions of communities
around the world—the Girl Scout troops. Juliette believed
that girls should receive the same opportunities as boys to
develop physically, mentally, and spiritually—and she and
those who would follow in her footsteps have worked hard
to ensure that what she started would flourish in the years
ahead.
The Present
We envision a world where girls and women are represented
equally as leaders of our communities, our businesses, and
our nation—and with your help, we will see that vision become
a reality. In our next 100 years, Girl Scouts seeks to expand
our reach while providing evenmore impactful opportunities
to each girl whomakes the Girl Scout Promise.
The Future
One hundred years later, Girl Scouts is the nation’s premier
leadership organization for girls. We work on a broader scale
and our girls navigate a more complex world than ever before,
but some things remain the same. Each Girl Scout continues
to benefit fromconnecting with her peers in an environment
where she can build the confidence and skills she needs
to become a leader. We are proud of the impact we have
made so far, but the astounding potential present in our girls
inspires us to aimhigher.
