Our Leadership

When Juliette Gordon Low founded Girl Scouts in 1912, she understood that dedicated and dynamic leaders were vital to helping girls develop their full potential. Today, the organization is led by the chief executive officer, National Board of Directors, headquarters staff, and volunteers and professional staff in over 100 local councils across the U.S. With the support, vision, and commitment of these role models, girls have the opportunity to find—and become—leaders in their communities and the world.

A MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

One of the most powerful results of living the Girl Scout Law is the ability to exercise and recognize true leadership. Being honest and fair, courageous and strong, using resources wisely, respecting yourself and others, and making the world a better place…these are values that our staff and our volunteers on a national and a local level continually teach, model, and reinforce. I am proud that for over 100 years Girl Scouting has produced and attracted so many examples of courage, confidence, and character in our girls and the adults who lead them.
