Who We Are
We are Girl Scouts. We are 2.7 million strong—1.9 million girls and 800,000 adult volunteers who believe girls can change the world. More than 15,000 of those girls and adults are right here in Monmouth and Ocean counties. Last year, our girls who earned our highest awards, the Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards, provided more than 15,000 hours of community service to our community. The rest of our Girl Scouts gave much, much more.
The Girl Scout story began 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.
