We are Girl Scouts

"The Work of Today is the History of Tomorrow,
and We are its Makers."

Juliette Gordon Low

Girl Scouts of the USA

In 1912, Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low started the first Girl Scout troop in Savannah, Georgia, with only 18 girls.  For over a century, Girl Scouting has grown into a network of nearly 50 million alumnae, including: a Supreme Court Justice, a Space Shuttle Commander and our current nominee for President of the United States. Almost seventy-percent of women Governors and members of Congress are grown-up Girl Scouts.

The Girl Scout Mission is to "build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.”  The Movement’s core program is the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE), a portfolio of proven resources and strategies designed to move girls toward 15 Outcomes that research shows are highly correlated with leadership development. Working in partnership with adult volunteers, Girl Scouts participate in activities that develop life skills such as financial literacy, support academic achievement in areas such as science and technology, foster an appreciation of the natural world, encourage healthy lifestyles and promote service.  Every year, Girl Scouts contribute thousands of hours to service projects that do, in fact, “make the world a better place."

Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast

Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast was formed in October 2007 by the merger of two great Girl Scout Councils with rich histories:  Girl Scouts of Monterey Bay and Tres Condados Girl Scout Council. Chartered by Girl Scouts of the USA to provide Girl Scouting in the counties of Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura, GSCCC encompasses some of the most beautiful and environmentally significant parts of the country.  The council has a growing membership of 10,000 girls and 5,500 adults.

Several programs, from Tidepooling to Mountain Climbing are uniquely available to Girl Scouts on California's Central Coast. Click here to learn more about being a Girl Scout on California's Central Coast.
