On March 12, 1912, Juliette Low created America’s first Girl Scout troop. First celebrated in 1933, Girl Scout Week originally consisted of seven days of service. Today, troops honor Girl Scout Week by working on community service projects or learning about Juliette Low and the first Girl Scout troop. Others educate themselves about important women in their communities who were Girl Scouts, host a Girl Scout birthday party, or donate some of the troop’s cookie profit to a worthy cause.
Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana serves more than 23,000 girl members and 7,000 adult members across 60 counties in Kentucky and southern Indiana. Girl Scouts advocates for all girls and helps them build character and gain skills for success in life. In partnership with committed adults and communities, we inspire girls to develop strong values, leadership skills, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth.
Please join us in our celebration by supporting Girl Scouts. Whether you’re donating funds or volunteering your time, it takes very little to make a world of difference for the girls in our community.
