Girl Scout Leader Day is an annual American holiday created to honor the leaders in the Girl Scouts of America. These are adult women who have enough experience and knowledge to share with the girls. It is celebrated on April 22.
Girl Scouting in the United States began in 1912, when the first girls’ troop was created by Juliette G. Lowe. A year later there was a formal organization, with new girls joining every year. Girl Scouting began its triumphal procession, attracting girls from every state and even from other countries.
Girl Scouting is an extension of the Boy Scout initiative. Girls in the units learned how to establish social contacts with each other and how to work as a team. Much emphasis was placed on life skills (cooking, mending torn clothes, first aid, etc.). In addition to acquiring practical skills, the idea of outdoor activities was promoted: various games and hikes.
- Girl Scouts can do charity work. The girls bake their own cookies and sell them on city streets. Each person buying these products can be sure that the money will go to support children’s homes, sick children, etc.
- The organization has more than 1,800,000 female members of all ages.
- The motto of all Scouts (boys and girls) is Be Prepared!
