 The Girl Scouts is a great organization for all girls, always seeking to create future leaders who are well rounded and exposed to a variety of experiences. Girl scouts learn skills  such as financial literacy, first aid, online safety, about camping, gardening, and so much more. 

The first FAB troop was established during the 1930’s in the ‘Dixie Region’, which was in southern states. Since then, The Girl Scouts has been an incredibly inclusive group, with members from different races, ability groups, and even other countries.
