Girl Scouts of Connecticut

A snapshot of our organization.

We’re over 52,000 members strong – girls and adults – who believe that every girl can change the world.

We’re part of a sisterhood of 2.7 million around the globe. It all began more than 100 years ago with one woman, Juliette Gordon Low, who believed in the power of one girl. We continue her vision of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. At Girl Scouts, we believe that there’s a chance for every girl to do something amazing.

We are Girl Scouts of Connecticut.

Our Mission
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Our Council
We became Girl Scouts of Connecticut on October 1, 2007
, but there has been Girl Scouting in Connecticut since 1912. Our council covers the whole state!

You can find us at our main business office at 340 Washington Street, Hartford, or in your local
Service Centers. Four of those Service Centers have retail shops where you can pick up the Girl Scout gear you need.

Any questions? Give us a call at (800) 922-2770.

Our Promise

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God* and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

* Feel free to replace the word "God" with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate.

 Our Law

I will do my best to be
    honest and fair,
    friendly and helpful,
    considerate and caring,
    courageous and strong, and
    responsible for what I say and do,
and to
    respect myself and others,
    respect authority,
    use resources wisely,
    make the world a better place, and
    be a sister to every Girl Scout.

Our Values
We stand for diversity and inclusiveness and do not discriminate on any basis.
