Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) is 2.6 million strong—1.8 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts takes the potential of girls, combines it with robust skill-building programming, and adds caring adult mentors and strong female role models. Everything a Girl Scout does focuses on unleashing her leadership potential in the areas of STEM, the outdoors, development of life skills, and entrepreneurship.
The Girl Scout journey began more than 100 years ago with Founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and on March 16, 1950, Girl Scouts of the USA was chartered by the United States Congress to provide girls across the country with the Girl Scouting experience. Every year since, we’ve honored our founder’s vision and legacy by offering an inclusive, all-female leadership development program designed by and for girls that prepares them for a lifetime of leadership.
Headquartered in New York City, Girl Scouts has 112 chartered councils nationwide that are each independent 501(c)3 non-profits. These councils provide direct services to girls, volunteers, and the communities they serve. Girl Scouting is open to all girls from kindergarten through high school.
