The Girl Scout Purpose

The purpose of Girl Scouting is to inspire girls with the highest ideals of character, conduct, patriotism, and service that they may become happy and resourceful citizens. Girl Scouting seeks to accomplish this by providing girls opportunities to develop their potential and have fun with their peers in a supportive, all-girl setting.

 

 

Girl Scouting Is:

A movement that gives girls from all segments of American life a chance to develop their potential, to make friends, and to become a vital part of their community. Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. was founded by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912. It is a not-for-profit, youth serving organization chartered by the United States Congress. Based on ethical values, it opens up a world of opportunities for girls, working in partnership with adult volunteers. Its sole focus is to meet the needs of girls.

The founder of Girl Scouting, Juliette Gordon Low, organized the first Girl Scout troop in the United States on March 12, 1912. She lived for a time in England, and it was there that she met Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of Boy Scouts, and his sister Agnes, who had started a similar movement for girls called Girl Guides. Juliette Low was so impressed with this concept for girls that she decided to bring the organization to the United States. She held the first American Girl Scout meeting at her home in Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912.

Juliette Low set a standard for Girl Scouts and people everywhere who want to work actively to make the world a better, friendlier, and more peaceful place. The Girl Scout program, based on the ideas of Juliette Low, gives girls and adults opportunities to understand themselves and others, to develop skills, values, and ethics, and to extend and contribute their special gifts and talents.

Throughout its 90 years, the Girl Scout movement has played a key role in helping girls prepare for their futures. In keeping with founder Juliette Gordon Low's vision, the Girl Scouts remain committed to meeting the unique needs of girls. Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. continues to offer girls opportunities to explore new career paths and prepare for expanded roles in a changing society, while retaining the timeless values that have made the Girl Scout experience rich and meaningful for all girls.

 

Girl Scouts of the U.S.A.

Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. (GSUSA) is the largest voluntary organization for girls in the world. The headquarters are in New York City. Councils are the local units chartered by GSUSA to administer the Girl Scout program within an assigned jurisdiction. The organization serves girls ages 5 - 17 (or grades kindergarten to 12th) who subscribe to its ideals as stated in the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

GSUSA forms part of a worldwide family of girls and adults in 140 countries through its membership in the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). WAGGGS is an international organization whose purpose was to encourage friendship among girls. Today, 8.5 million girls and adults belong to WAGGGS.

The World Association Pin is worn to show membership in this international movement. WAGGGS is headquartered in London and operates four world centers: Pax Lodge (England), Our Chalet (Switzerland), Sang (India), and Our Canbana (Mexico).

 

Membership

Today there are approximately 3.7 million Girl Scout members.

Girl Scout Junior 4th - 5th grades
Girl Scout Cadette 6th - 8th grades
Girl Scout Senior   9th - 10th grades

The Girl Scout organizaton has 986,000 adult members (women and men), including volunteer leaders, consultants, board members, and staff specialists in such areas as child development, adult education, outdoor education, and administration. Employed executives account for less than 1 percent of total adult membership.

 

The Girl Scout Program: A Learning Experience for All

"The Girl Scout program is an informal educational program designed to help girls put into practice the fundamental principles of the Girl Scout Movement as set forth in the Preamble. The program is adapted to meet the developmental, educational, emotional, and social needs and interests of girls at six age levels. It is carried out in small groups with adult leadership and provides a wide range of activities developed around the interests and needs of girls."

It is a continuous adventure in learning that offers every girl a broad range of activities which address both her current interests and her future role as a woman. Through activities that stimulate self-discovery, girls are introduced to the excitement in the worlds of science, the arts, the out-of-doors, and people. Girls grow in skill and in self-confidence. They have fun, they make new friends, and through meaningful community service they acquire understanding about themselves and others.

The Girl Scout program is based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law:

The Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be

honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to

respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

 

Girl Scouting's Goals for Girls

There are three key goals of the Girl Scout program, which are: DISCOVER, CONNECT, and TAKE ACTION.

DISCOVER:
Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.

CONNECT:
Girls care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally.

TAKE ACTION:
Girls act to make the world a better place.
