- Families & Volunteers
Girl Scouts was founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low to provide all girls with the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually in preparation for possible future roles as professional women, and for active citizenship outside the home. Her vision to prepare girls for leadership roles in their families, communities, and globally continues more than 100 years later, with more than 59 million Girl Scout alumnae in the U. S. today.
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
and to live by the Girl Scout Law.
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
