100 Years

100 Years of Girl Scouting

Girl Scouts began its journey in America on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Georgia, when Juliette Gordon Low brought 18 girls together for the first ever Girl Scout troop meeting. For more than 100 years, Girl Scouting has stayed true to the principles established by Ms. Low on that memorable day in our organization’s history—that girls develop their character and self-worth from the values we instill, the lessons we teach and the time we invest.

We have come a long way since the first, official Girl Scout meeting, but the cornerstone of our values remains unchanged. Please join us for the next 100 years as girl go further and make the world an even better place.
