About Girl Scouts

girl-scouts-western-oklahoma-logoThe Girl Scouts are 2.8 million strong-2 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe girls can change the world. It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, they’ve made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.

Today, as yesterday, they continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. They’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.
