With more than 1.7 million girls and 750,000 adults across the United
States who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter,
Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™, Girl Scouts is 2.5 million strong.
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.
And 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.
For All Girls
Diversity and inclusion have been core values of Girl Scouts since
its founding in 1912. Girl Scouts of Northern California and Girl
Scouts of the USA value diversity in all its forms and do not
discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, alienage or
national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, age, disability,
gender, marital status, familial status, veteran status, sexual
orientation, gender identification, genetic information, public
assistance, local human rights commission activity, or any other
characteristic protected by applicable federal, state, or local laws.
At Girl Scouts of Northern California, we are committed to providing
a welcoming and inclusive environment for every girl and her family.
