juliette golden eagletGirl 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.
