Since 1912, Girl Scouts has helped Connecticut's girls build courage, confidence and character. While we have always remained true to Juliette Gordon Low's vision, we are constantly evolving. That's why we say we're 100 years young! Join us, and see how Girl Scouts discover themselves as they explore their world, connect with others and take action through activities and programs that are relevant and exciting to girls today.
We will be performing maintenance on our phone and internet systems on Friday, March 26, from 8:00-9:00 a.m. There may be intermittent outages, including the Program and Training Registration Area. If you experience any technical issues, please try again later. Thank you for your patience.
