Our Girl Scout History
Our founder, Juliette Gordon Low, started Girl Scouting with a group of 18 girls in Savannah, GA, on March 12, 1912 to begin a tradition that would eventually be replicated in millions of communities around the world -- Girl Scout troops.
She believed 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.
She was a trailblazer. Amazing. Ahead of her time. A Girl Scout.
