Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Girl Scouting is a premier voice for girls and a leading expert on their growth and development. Together with committed adult volunteers who partner with girls to guide and inspire their growth and achievement, the organization builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Since its founding in 1912, Girl Scouts has offered remarkable oppurtunities for girls to develop positive values and to contribute to society as leaders, thinkers, and responsible citizens. Today, Girl Scouts remains a highly regarded, contemporary organization and a steadfast advocate for girls.
Membership in Girl Scouts is open to all girls in grades K - 12 who accept the promise and law; women and men 18 or older can join as adult members. Membership is $25 per year, but no girl is denied membership for financial reasons. All girls are encouraged to become Girl Scouts, regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, national origin, socioeconomic status or ability.
