Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, to establish the American Girl Guides. She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. By the following year, the name of the organization had changed to Girl Scouts. With the goal of bringing girls out of isolated home environments and into community service and the open air, Girl Scouts hiked, played basketball, went on camping trips, learned how to tell time by the stars, and studied first aid.
