Girl Scout Week Commemorates 99-Year Anniversary Organization Began With One Woman's Dream; Evolved Into Premiere Leadership Program

It was ninety-nine years ago that Juliette Gordon Low made a historical telephone call to Nina Anderson Pape; distant cousin and principal of a local girls' school. "Come right over, I've got something for the girls of Savannah and all America and all the world, and we're going to start it tonight!" Shortly thereafter, Juliette Low held the first Girl Scout meeting in Savannah, Georgia on March 12, 1912, with 18 girls in attendance. Since that momentous occasion, Girl Scouting has helped more than 50 million American women build courage, confidence and character through its multitude of programs, events, activities, learning and travel opportunities. Continually evolving, yet remaining true to its core values, Girl Scouting promotes leadership development, environmental consciousness and the awareness that we are all part of a larger global community.
