About Us

We're 22,500 strong—nearly 14, 500 girls and more than 8,000 adults in Oregon and SW Washington who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Girl Scouts is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. Girl-led, expert-approved, and volunteer-supported, Girl Scouts helps girls discover their strengths and 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.

At Girl Scouts, we prepare girls to empower themselves to be leaders in their lives and in the world. From the iconic Girl Scout Cookie Program, which has launched millions of entrepreneurs and businesswomen, to our outdoor and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs that help girls unlock their full potential, Girl Scouting works! With programs throughout Oregon and Clark, Skamania and Klickitat Counties in Washington, Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington offers girls a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.

YOU have the potential to change girls’ lives and help them build their own success—whatever that looks like to them. Join our team, make an impact on girls in your community and watch as they make an impact on the world!

Making the world a better place isn’t a job for just anyone! It calls for a commitment to our mission and the principles of the Girl Scout Movement, strong character and values, and a drive to make the world a better place - that’s a job for a Girl Scout!
