It's all about Fun, Friends and Fantastic Opportunities
Girl Scouts is the largest girl serving organization in the United States. Girls in grades K - 12 who register by paying a $15.00 Girl Scouts of the United States registration fee and accept the Girl Scout Promise and Law are eligible to participate. Membership is according to six levels, based on school grades. Eligible girls register in the levels as shown:​

  

 

 

There are 3.2 million Girl Scouts (2.3 million girls and 880,000 adult volunteers) across the United States with Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas serving approximately 16,000 girls and 4,800 adult volunteers. The rich diversity of our 26 county territory is reflected in the multicultural mosaic of our membership:

  • We are urban, suburban & rural
  • We are in schools, churches, temples, mosques, public housing and recreation centers
  • We are in every zip code within our 34 county jurisdiction

 

 

Why Girl Scouts?
Girl Scouts changes the world by supporting the young women who are changing it. Girl members of Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas are accomplishing exciting and meaningful things such as:

  • Organizing Project Undercover and collecting items for hundreds of underprivileged children and providing them with new underwear and pajamas.
  • Creating Tau Gamma Sigma, a Middle School Program designed specifically for middle school girls and currently has over 500 members.
  • Learning valuable leadership and business skills through the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

 

 

Our 100 years of history exemplifies our impact in our local communities. Girl Scouts has done more than any other organization to provide girls with tools that will help them succeed in their futures. At any given time, only approximately 6.5% of eligible girls in our jurisdiction are participating in Girl Scouts, yet:

  • 80% of U.S. women business owners were Girl Scouts
  • 69% of female United States Senators were Girl Scouts
  • 67% of female members of the House of Representatives were Girl Scouts
  • Virtually every female astronaut who has flown in space was a Girl Scout

 

 

America's most accomplished women in public service , business, science, education, the arts, and community life are Girl Scout alumnae and Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta alumnae mirrors this national trend.
Don't Wait! .......Join Girl Scouts!
