In a country as diverse as the United States of America, it's rare to find something many of us have in common. Can you guess what more than 59 million living women across the country do have in common? They have all benefitted from the nation's premier leadership program for girls: Girl Scouts.

 

 

Were you once a Brownie, Cadette, Senior, troop leader or other Girl Scout member? Studies show that Girl Scout alumnae are women of courage, confidence and character, who are making the world a better place right now. Did you know that one in every two women has had a Girl Scout experience in their lifetime? These women recognize that Girl Scouting helped make them who they are today. Now we want to recognize you.

 

 

Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas and the Girl Scout Alumnae Association want to bring these women together to continue the positive impact of Girl Scouting in the community. Share your story behind the sash, and be recognized as a Girl Scout Great today!

 

 

What is your most favored memory from your time as a Girl Scout? Tell us!

If you have a history in Girl Scouting, we welcome you to join our Girl Scout Alumnae Association. Once a Girl Scout, Always a Girl Scout is our motto. As Girl Scouts and Girl Guides, we came to understand the value of sisterhood, and that belief continues in our lives as women in today's world.

Tell us your story behind the sash!

Can you guess what 1 in 2 women have in common? They have all benefitted from the nation's premier leadership program for girls ... Girl Scouts.

Studies show that Girl Scout alumnae are women of courage, confidence and character, who are making the world a better place right now. They are in your community and are teachers, mothers, business executives, and scientists who credit Girl Scouting as the place where they found their voice.

The Girl Scout Alumnae Association brings these women together and continues the positive impact of Girl Scouting by encouraging new volunteers, promoting business and social opportunities among alumnae, and increasing financial and human resources.

 

                                                                                   

Support Us

A great way to reconnect with Girl Scouts is to help the girls of today become the women leaders of tomorrow.  Learn more about how you can support Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas is by visiting the Support Us Area. 

 

 

Girl Scout Greats are former Girl Scouts who have achieved success in their area of expertise and who will advocate on behalf of all girls. 

Every leader has a story, and we are proud to feature South Texas women in leadership roles who are former Girl Scouts and serve as inspiration to us all. Just like these women, we know there are many more out there who got their start as leaders being a Girl Scout.

 
 
 

Whatever your Girl Scout role may have been - Brownie, Junior, Cadette, troop leader, camp volunteer, staff member, or dozens of others - count yourself among the 59 million women who are today's Girl Scout Greats. Whether you've started a business, you're a doctor or a community activist, tell us your story about where you are today and how your Girl Scout experience helped to get you there.

Tell us your story behind the sash today!
