We’re the Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains
Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains believes in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs that reach into 81 counties in north and west Texas and the Oklahoma panhandle, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
