One hundred years ago, Juliette Gordon Low brought to life her vision of an opportunity for girls to develop physically, mentally and spiritually by connecting with one another and their communities. Today, Girl Scouts continues to carry out and celebrate her vision while offering programming that meets the needs and reflects the interests of 21st-century girls. See for yourself how we’ve evolved!
