    Girl Scouting builds Future Leaders ——— 2016 ANNUAL REPORT———

  • In 1912, Juliette Gordon Low of Savannah, Georgia founded Girl Scouts. Just five years later, Coronado

    became the home to the first Girl Scout troop west of the Rockies.

    A major reason Girl Scouting has been around for so long: We stay relevant! We want girls to be

    “G.I.R.L.s” (go-getters, innovators, risk-takers and leaders) … so we combine STEM, the outdoors, life

    skills and entrepreneurship with civic engagement, delivering life-changing, girl-led programming.

    Girl Scouts stands for inclusivity. We stand for unity, patriotism, and a commitment to the country

    we all share. We stand for the skills and resources that girls need to discover their talents and gain

    the courage, confidence, and character they need to be leaders. We stand for being honest and fair,

    friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, and courageous and strong.

    Our commitment to building future leaders is unwavering. We are pleased to share with you this

    annual report, a testament to our organization's ability to unlock the powerful potential of girls.

    Thank you for your continued support.
