Juliette Gordon Low called her cousin in 1911 after meeting Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting.  “I’ve got something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America, and all the world, and we’re going to start it tonight!”  And she did.
 
Over the next 100 years, the Girl Scouts of the United States of America instilled values such as honesty, courage, community service, and citizenship to over 50 million young women.  In 1994, the group was named the eighth most popular charity or non-profit in America, with 41% of Americans polled saying they “loved” the Girl Scouts or “liked them a lot.”
 
For the public, the annual Girl Scout cookie drive is a much-anticipated fundraising event.  But for many of the Scouts, the organization is their first chance to develop self-reliance, a variety of life skills, and resourcefulness outside of the home.  This is accomplished with the help of older women.  Unlike other groups, the Girl Scouts has been run exclusively by women since it was founded.
 
Famous American women who were Girl Scouts include actress Dakota Fanning, Lucille Ball, Katie Couric, and Elizabeth Dole, along with over 20 NASA astronauts.  These and many more women are leaving an impact on the world and helping make Juliette Gordon Low’s promise come true.
