HOUSTON — For over one hundred years, girls across America have been building confidence and redefining what was possible for themselves through the Girl Scouts of America. Mary Vitek, CEO of Girl Scouts Of San Jacinto Council, and Girl Scouts Lily and Meg stopped by Great Day Houston to talk about the organization. 

Girl Scouts of America was founded over a hundred years ago (before women had the right to vote) by Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. Low organized the very first Girl Scout troop to encourage girls to explore new possibilities and the wonders of the world around them. Today, the Girl Scouts are 2.5 million strong. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. 

The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council are currently recruiting new members throughout fall. 

They’re hosting a Success To Significance Luncheon on Tuesday, October 22 from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm at Silver Street Studios. For more information, visit gssjc.org.
