On this day in 1912, Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scouts. To provide girls opportunities to experience the outdoors, develop self-reliance, and participate in community service, Juliette Gordon Low organizes a Girl Guide troop meeting of 18 girls in her hometown of Savannah, Georgia. A year later, the Girl Guides will change their name to the Girl Scouts of the USA. The organization will go on to attract millions of girls and spread to 92 countries.
