As we approach our 100th Anniversary in March 2012, Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines would like to reconnect with you, our alumnae. We invite you to explore our alumnae pages, as well as our council website. Check back often, as we will continue to add new material to our alumnae pages.
Here’s a little background for you about both Girl Scouts of the USA and Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines:
Girl Scouts of the USA was founded on March 12, 1912, by Juliette Gordon Low, who brought girls together with the purpose of helping them develop a sense of responsibility, commit themselves to the highest ideals, and foster teamwork so they could learn to support one another. Today, Girl Scouts continues to be the preeminent organization for girls between the ages of five and 17 and has more than 3.4 million girl and adult members nationwide. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines, a merger of the Girl Scout Council of Coastal Carolina and Pines of Carolina Girl Scout Council serves more than 32,000 girl members and more than 10,000 adult members in 41 central and eastern North Carolina counties.
