Our Council

On March, 12, 1912, Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low brought 18 girls from Savannah out of isolated home environments and into the open air. Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, organized community service, went on camping trips and studied first aid.

A year later, Girl Scouts of the Commonwealth of Virginia began with Troop #1 in Highland Springs. In 1932, the first African-American Girl Scout troop in the South was formed in Richmond, meeting at Virginia Union University. Today, there is a historical marker commemorating history-making Girl Scout Troop 34 on Virginia Union's campus.

Girl Scouts of the Commonwealth of Virginia believes in the power of every girl. Our leadership program is designed to help a girl discover who she is and what she can do and connects her with a powerful community of girls and mentors to make it happen. Girl Scouts explore, learn, succeed and take action to make a difference in their community.

With support from dedicated adult volunteers, parents and staff, we deliver the best Girl Scout experience to 10,800 girls and 5,500 adults in a 30 county and 6 city area within Central, Northern, Southern, Western and Eastern Virginia. Our council's headquarters is located in the City of Richmond.
