Our History

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!

From the archives

Created in 1918 by National Headquarters Girl Scouts, “The Golden Eaglet” was a recruitment video that showed a group of courageous Girl Scouts using a range of gained skills to complete outdoor tasks, serve their community and even save a life.

Hartford Courant Article On January 13, 1946, the Hartford Courant Magazine published this article on the 25th anniversary of the Girl Scouts. How we’ve changed!
