  • Mission Statement Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character,

    who make the world a better place.

    2015 Annual Report Card

  • A Letter from Jackie & Vivian

    “Girl Scouts are encouraged to welcome all obstacles, as it’s only by meeting with difficulties that you can know how to overcome them.” - Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl Scouts.

    Juliette knew leadership wasn’t defined by who you are or what you want to be, but by what you do. Every day Girl Scouts lead by creating, solving, building, failing, trying, growing, helping, talking, asking, and doing — just ordinary girls doing extraordinary things! Here at Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana our girls are extraordinary. They are leaders in their schools, churches, and communities. In Girl Scouts leadership isn’t just a label, it’s practiced as an everyday lifestyle.

    Our amazing volunteers work tirelessly to bring our mission to life across the Kentuckiana council. Volunteers serve as role models, inspiring our girls to grow into all they can be. Together we are making the world a better place.

    Thank you to all that invest your time, talent, and treasures to ensure that Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana can continue to engage more girls. Girl Scouts does more than empower girls – Girl Scouts prepares girls to empower themselves.


    Jacqueline Ford, CEO Vivian Blade, Chair of the Board Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana

    & Facts


    “It is a great experience to be able to help young girls realize they have the

    abilities to do whatever they want to do.”


    “I feel that my daughter is making friendships that will last a lifetime. I

    love getting to watch how [Girl] Scouts is helping her discover what she loves

    about herself and [to] mature into a young woman.”


    “I would recommend Girl Scouts to other girls because you learn skills that will help you in life and you get to go to Girl Scout camp which is very fun. And lastly you get to hang out with your Girl

    Scout friends.”

    The Girl Scout DNA—Girl Scouts are more likely than non-Girl Scouts to:

    • Set ambitious goals and think about the future. • Be more financially literate and negotiate for themselves. • Advocate for herself and others. • Self-identify as leaders and take on leadership roles. • Practice empathy and emotional intelligence. • Care about (and take action against) social injustices. • Be more solution-oriented and less likely to be a bystander. • Embrace new experiences and overcome failure.

    Girl Scouts serve a key role in helping our communities become stronger.

    • 78% improved willingness to face their fears and take on new experiences. • 73% improved willingness to persist through challenges. • 80% formed positive connections with girls and women across generations.
