Once a Girl Scout, Always a Girl Scout     
Since 1912, millions of women have had their lives positively influenced-sometimes even transformed –by their Girl Scout experience.  Whether you are one of the 50 million women who were in Girl Scouts, or a volunteer, or a staff member who worked at the local or national level to help Girl Scouts reach their full potential, you are forever connected to a rich and vibrant movement.


Stay Connected, Change a Girl’s Life

As Girl Scout Alumnae, you know firsthand how transforming a positive program can be in a girl’s life.  Whether you are actively involved with Girl Scouts or not, you can stay connected through the National Girl Scout Alumnae Association.

 

 

Facts about being Girl Scout Alumnae

  1. It is estimated that there are more than 50 million Girl Scout Alumnae.
  2. The first Girl Scout Troops began before women were given the right to vote.  Today more than 90 years later, there is a “Troop Capital Hill” made up of all congresswomen who are honorary Girl Scouts.
  3. Nearly 70 % of the women in the U.S. Congress today were former Girl Scouts.
  4. 64% of the women listed in Who’s Who of American Women are Girl Scout Alumnae.
  5. 53% of all women business owners are Girl Scout Alumnae.

Girls can participate by joining an existing troop, creating a new troop, attending day and resident camps, participating in events, and enjoying Girl Scout travel opportunities.  Girl Scouts are divided into Girl Scout Daisies (Kindergarten-Grade 1), Girl Scout Brownies (Grades 2-3), Girl Scout Juniors (Grades 4-5), Girl Scout Cadettes (Grades 6-8), Girl Scout Seniors (Grades 9-10) and Girl Scout Ambassadors (Grades 11-12).

Girl Scout Daisies
Daisy Giirls

Girl Scout Daisies get to know one another, learn basic Girl Scout Values, sample the Daisy story, and begin to plant/grow-all the while developing their ability to see that throughout the world, people (and plants) have unique identities.

Girl Scouts Daisies are Kindergarten – 1st Grade

Girl Scout Brownies
Brownie Girls  

Girl Scout Brownies discover and give voice to their special qualities and appreciate the qualities of their sister Brownies.  Then they “find” the values of the Girl Scout Law and prepare to share them with their families.

Girl Scout Brownies are 2nd – 3rd Grades

Girl Scout Juniors
Junior Grils  

Girl Scout Juniors discover their own values and individual “powers” by looking at their daily activities and sharing in the stories of others.

Girl Scout Juniors are 4th – 5th Grades

Cadette Girls  

Girl Scout Cadettes explore relationship obstacles and impact first impressions have on relationships.

Girl Scout Cadettes are 6th, 7th, and 8th Grades

Girl Scout Seniors
Senior Girls  

Girl Scout Seniors use positive values as the basis for thinking about how to make the world a better for girls.

Girl Scouts Seniors are 9th and 10th Grades

Girl Scout Ambassadors
Ambassador Girls

Girl Scout Ambassadors use their values and community connections to choose an advocacy issue for their journey.

Girl Scout Ambassadors are 11th and 12th Grades
