We’re Girl Scouts of the USA
We’re 2.6 million strong-1.8 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the 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.
In the Lubbock area, Girl Scouts are served by Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains. For more information on how to join, volunteer, reconnect, or donate, call 800-582-7272 or visit gs-top.org.
