Girl Scouts of the USA was born on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Georgia, when Juliette Gordon Low united 18 girls to form the first Girl Scout troop in America. For over 100 years, Girl Scouting has been based upon the principles set forth by Ms. Low, that girls develop their character and self-worth from the values we instill, the lessons we teach and the time we invest.
In May of 2008, the five Girl Scout councils in Nebraska merged to form one council serving more than 25,000 members in a 92 county region. We are now able to extend more resources for programs and activities to girls throughout the state who have yet to experience Girl Scouting. The organization’s larger geographic span also presents more opportunities for volunteers and girls to interact with people from diverse backgrounds. Through Girl Scouting, girls develop strong values, social conscience and leadership abilities that they will use throughout their lives. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.
