about our council

Council History

We’re the Girl Scouts—11,000 girls and adults in Kentuckiana who believe every girl can change the world.

It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in the power of every girl. Today we continue her vision of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place by helping them discover their inner strength, passions, and talents.

And with programs serving girls in over 700 zip codes, there’s a chance for every girl to do something amazing.

We’re Girl Scouts. To volunteer, reconnectdonate, or join, you’re at the right place.

Leadership experiences are what make Girl Scouting unique

We help every girl discover who she can be and what she can do, wherever she chooses to put her energy.

The journey begins with the Girl Scout environment itself. A girl’s leadership potential blooms among other girls – away from school pressures, social cliques and boys – where she can be herself and try new things. Among Girl Scouts, activities are girl-led. She learns by doing, and the learning is cooperative, not competitive.

To discover who she can be, she needs access to wise adults who both inspire her and respect her. Our 4,000 volunteers do this every day.

To discover what she can do, she needs participation opportunities as varied as the world so she can “try on” different leadership roles and grow into the ones that fit her best.
