Get Involved With Girl Scouts
There's much more to being a Girl Scout than selling cookies. They get to have fun (think girl power sort of fun) while learning how to be confident and successful in the real world. Check out what Girl Scouts are all about!
Girl Scouts - Today's Girls, Tomorrow's LeadersGirl Scouts was founded by an American woman named Juliette Gordon Low. She wanted to help young girls turn into strong, successful leaders, so she gathered 18 girls together to form the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912. She emphasized the importance of community service and outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and playing sports. Learning practical skills is also an important part of Girl Scouts. When you complete a task, like planting a garden, building a bird house, or giving first aid to an injured person, you receive a badge that you sew onto your uniform.
Girl Scouts - Movin' On UpThe four levels of Girl Scouts are based on your age. To move up to the next level, girls participate in a ceremony called bridging, where they walk across a symbolic bridge to their new troop and greet them with a Girl Scout handshake.
Once you complete all levels, you can apply to become a Girl Scout leader and help other girls be the best they can be!
