On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low organized the very first Girl Scout troop. G.I.R.L. stands for go-getter, innovator, risk-taker and leader.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma serves approximately 13,000 girls and volunteers in 30 eastern Oklahoma counties and is a United Way agency. The national organization as a whole is 2.6 million strong—1.8 million girls and 800,000 adults.
The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls. It is based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming that teaches girls leadership skills through activities such as night-time hikes, missions on the International Space Station, lobbying the city council, and running her own cookie business.
Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led and girl-friendly environment.
Girl Scouts endeavors to create an environment where girls can practice different skills, explore their potential and take on leadership positions.
