Can you guess what 1 in 2 women have in common? They have all benefitted from the nation's premier leadership program for girls ... Girl Scouts.
Studies show that Girl Scout alumnae are women of courage, confidence and character, who are making the world a better place right now. They are in your community and are teachers, mothers, business executives, and scientists who credit Girl Scouting as the place where they found their voice.
The Girl Scout Alumnae Association brings these women together and continues the positive impact of Girl Scouting by encouraging new volunteers, promoting business and social opportunities among alumnae, and increasing financial and human resources.
A great way to reconnect with Girl Scouts is to help the girls of today become the women leaders of tomorrow. Learn more about how you can support Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas by visiting the Support Us Section.
To commemorate Girl Scouting's 100th anniversary, Girl Scout alumnae are being celebrated as Girl Scout Greats. Girl Scout Greats are former Girl Scouts who have achieved success in their area of expertise and who will advocate on behalf of all girls.
Every leader has a story, and we are proud to feature Southwest Texas women in leadership roles who are former Girl Scouts and serve as inspiration to us all. Just like these women, we know there are many more out there who got their start as leaders being a Girl Scout.
