Girl Scouting in the United States of America began on this day, March 12, 1912, when Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout troop meeting.  At this first troop meeting in Savannah, Georgia, there were 18 girls present.  For these girls, Juliette Gordon Low organized enrichment programs, service projects and outdoor activities and adventures.  Since the time of the first meeting, Girl Scouts has grown to over 3.7 million members.

 

  • The organization’s original name was the Girl Guides of America
  • By 1920 there were close to 70,000 members
  • By 1930 there were over 200,000 members
  • In 2005 there were over 3.7 million members

“Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.”

In honor of National Girl Scout Day, let’s celebrate all that the Girl Scouts have done to empower girls and what the organization has done for communities across the country.
