Girl Scout Week


Governor Asa Hutchinson has declared the week of March 10-16 as Girl Scout Week in Arkansas.

In his proclamation, Hutchinson said Girl Scouts inspire G.I.R.L. – Go-getter Innovator, Risk-taker and Leader – in every girl, preparing her for a lifetime of leadership.

The Girl Scout program, which began in 1912, is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, with proven results. It is based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming that help girls take the lead—in their own lives and in the world. 

Today more that 50 million women are Girl Scout Alums and 2.6 million girls and adults are current members. Girl Scouts welcomes girls of all backgrounds and interests who want to develop the courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place.

We appreciate all those women who have stepped up into leadership roles to continue the Girl Scouts program!
