2013 “The Year of the Girl”
CELEBRATES 100 YEARS!!
March 12, 2012 Marked our 100th year Centennial Celebration. In 2012, Girl Scouts of the USA will mark 100 years of inspiring girls and young women with the ideals of courage, confidence and character. Millions of active Girl Scouts, volunteers and alumnae will come together to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts is the largest girl-serving organization in the nation, and we will honor our rich legacy of developing girl and young women leaders.

Members of this pool may be asked to represent GSUSA at the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) leadership events and trainings, and will serve for a triennium (2011-2014).
Join the Girl Scouts Advocacy Network The Girl Scouts Advocacy Network provides a tool for you to become a voice for girls and to make a difference in your community and across the nation. Together, we can educate policymakers and community leaders on issues that directly affect girls and the Girl Scouts. By being an advocate, you will have an impact on girl policy issues moving through Congress and state legislatures.
