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.
We’re 2.7 million strong—1.9 million girls and 800,000 adult volunteers who believe girls can change the world. It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we’ve made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.
Today, as yesterday, we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.
- 75% of the women US Senators are Girl Scout alumnae.
- 53% women in the US House of Representatives are Girl Scout alumnae.
- 5 out of 6 the current female governors are Girl Scout alumnae
- Every female secretary of state in U.S. history is a former Girl Scout.
- More than half (52%) of women in business are Girl Scout alumnae.
What these numbers tell me is that Girl Scouts encourage girls to explore and refine their skills and give them the confidence to share these skills with the world and make the world a better place. This is what I want for our daughters.
Please contact me to discuss starting a new troop at St. Catharine or to join an existing troop.

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.
