Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
We're 2.5 million strong-more than 1.7 million girls and 750,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)(tm) to change the world.
Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
I have volunteered with Girl Scout Ohio's Heartland for over a little more than 10 years. As a troop leader and outdoor trainer, I have learned so much and working with the kids is so rewarding! Also, the interesting people I have met truly have enriched my life. Our future leaders are our kids, invest wisely by volunteering with our future leaders! Come....make a difference with us!
I volunteered to help get Girl Scout cookies to the troops after their cookie sale. And even though it was cold and there were thousands of cookies to load into cars, everyone was in good spirits. People were friendly and with all the helping hands the work went smoothly. The Girl Scouts even kept a steady suppply of hot chocolate flowing for all of their volunteers. I will definitely volunteer next year.
