About Girl Scouts
We’re 2.6 million strong—1.8 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world.
Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. With programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Girl Scout Promise
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.
Girl Scout Law
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access
Girl Scouts has always stood for making the world a better place, and our mission is founded in service, opportunity, and encouragement for every girl, everywhere. We will always inspire girls to create a more equitable, just world.
In our Movement, diversity is a hallmark of our membership; equity is at the heart of our foundation; inclusivity is a cornerstone of our culture; and access is at the forefront of the programming and opportunities we provide.
Still, we know that the work to make the world better is never done.
Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles is committed to remaining a force of positive change locally and globally, and we recognize that empathetic leadership is at the core. We are ever-ready to do the work in ensuring that diversity, equity, inclusion, and access are paramount to our mission and an important part of our culture.
Our Girl Scout Family—members, volunteers, leadership, staff—make up an amazing tapestry of cultures, perspectives, identities, and beliefs. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
