“Do a good turn to someone every day: that is … to be a giver and not a taker.” ~Juliette Gordon Low
In 1912, Juliette Gordon Low (1860–1927) founded Girl Scouts of the USA. She believed in the power of all girls and the importance of their growth, character, and self-sufficiency.
A meeting with Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Boy Scouts, inspired Juliette to establish Girl Scouts that same year. She gave tirelessly and created a global organization that inspires leadership, goodness, service, research and engagement.
President Barack Obama posthumously awards the Presidential Medal of Freedom one hundred years after Girl Scouts was formed, the highest civilian award in the United States, to Juliette Gordon Low for her “remarkable vision,” and celebrates “her dedication to empowering girls everywhere.”
Scouts honor, your honor too.
