Tomorrow is the birthday of our founder, Juliette Low. Way back in 1912 Juliette discovered a need in her community. By connecting with Sir Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides, she learned about the growing international youth movement. Committed to helping American girls benefit from the movement, Juliette took action and in 1912 created the first Girl Scout troop in Savannah, GA.
Since then, more than 3.4 million girls and women have benefited from the Girl Scout program. Each one along the way each has developed leadership skills using the three keys of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience: discover, connect and take action.
If you are one of the 3.4 million who have grown strong through Girl Scouting, this is the time to stand up and be counted. Celebrate our founder's birthday by shouting "I'm proud to be a Girl Scout!" at the top of your lungs.
- Adults, join our alumnae association and connect with other strong women.
- Adults, invest in Girl Scouts through an on-going gift or one time contribution.
- Girls, share Girl Scouting by sending an ecard to a friend!
- Girls, pick from one of the many ideas on our Web site.
From all of us at GSCTX, Happy Birthday Juliette!
