More than 100 years ago, Girl Scouts was founded by Juliette Gordon Low on a simple premise: build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. It is a mission and a promise to you, our members, that we have never wavered on.
Now more than ever, Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council stands with our sister councils across the country in our commitment to ensuring girls continue to have a space that is their own. We believe strongly in the importance of an all-girl, girl-led and girl-friendly environment that creates a necessary safe space for girls to learn and thrive.
Girls face unique challenges, and they need support from the very beginning to build resilience and confidence. The Girl Scout program is designed - and proven - to change these statistics for girls:
- Starting at 6 years old, girls start thinking that boys are smarter than them.
- In elementary school, girls are as excited about science and math as boys, but by middle school they lose interest.
- One in every three girls says she is afraid to lead because of what others might think of her.
At Girl Scouts, we are girl experts. Our programs are research- and evidence-based, and it is because of this research that we know our members, like you and your Girl Scout, excel in important aspects of life. ...
