Girl Scouts was started by Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low on March 12, 1912.
I was about 14 years old when this photo was taken in 1966. As a Cadette and Senior I was introduced local and world role models who were women. Scouts also taught me that diversity, citizen participation, and deep appreciation of the environment were also incredibly highly valued.
Throughout my scouting experience I was taught that giving back is a part of what one should do.
So here is a bit of history about GSUSA. The following is from Wikipedia's history entry for Girl Scouts of America.
