Girl Scouting

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

Membership in Girl Scouting is open to girls between the ages of 5 and 17, and to women and men over the age of 18, who make the Girl Scout Promise, accept the Girl Scout Law and pay annual membership dues. These are the only requirements for membership. Membership shall not be denied because of race, color, religion, national origin, parents’ marital status, disability or family income.

World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts can be found all over the world and all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts are members of this world organization called WAGGGS, World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and was formed in 1928 during the Fifth International Conference where delegates from 26 countries decided that WAGGGS should be established. Lord Robert Braden Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts and his wife, Lady Olave Powell would represent this organization. Juliette Low (the founder of Girl Scouting in the United States) and many women like her, worked closely with Lord Powell, to adapt the movement to local conditions and cultures around the world.

Today, Girl Scouts of the U.S.A are members of the family of 8.5 million Girl Scouts and Girl Guides the world over. There are 139 member countries of the WAGGGS. Every Girl Scout is part of an international sisterhood. When Girl Guides and Girl Scouts meet, instead of seeing each other as “different,” they feel the similarities of a common heritage in Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting. They share the same Promise and Law, the same symbols, the same belief in active citizenship, the same goal of helping themselves and others grow into the fullest sense of womanhood.
