Happy Birthday, Juliette! Over 100 years of girl-leadership development and it's all thanks to one woman's vision of what a girl could do! Today we’re 2.7 million strong-- 61,000 girl members and 17,000 adult members just in The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council who believe girls can change the world. It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we've made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.
Today, as yesterday, we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.
