A Century of Making Girls a Priority


Juliette Gordon Low started the first Girl Scout troop in Savannah, Georgia in 1912 with a phone call and a vision. Just one year later, the first Girl Scout troop in New York started in Harlem. Girl Scouts has been making girls a priority for one hundred years – thanks to the spirit of our founder Juliette Gordon Low, and the millions of volunteers, friends and supporters who followed her.

As we celebrate 100 years of serving girls in New York City, we invite you to join us and help us give every girl the opportunity we believe she can be, and the leader the world needs her to be.
