We're Girl Scouts of Western Ohio—more than 36,000 girl members and more than 11,000 adults in 32 counties throughout western Ohio and southeastern Indiana who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Chartered by Girl Scouts of the USA, we’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And as a United Way-funded agency, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
