Coloring Page: Juliette Gordon Low

Mint green square with white sans serif font reading "Juliette Gordon Low."

Juliette Gordon Low met the founder of Boy Scouts in London in 1911. She was so enthralled with the program that she decided to create a version of the program in America for girls. Juliette created the first troop in Savannah, Georgia, in 1913. Within the first year there were ten troops in total throughout Savannah. As the Girl Scouts expanded money became an issue that hindered their success. Juliette felt a responsibility towards the girls and the organization and sold her precious pearl necklace in order to continue funding Girl Scouts. Today, Girls Scouts spans the globe with over 2.5 million Girl Scouts in the U.S. and 10 million worldwide – helping all girls grow into stewards of leadership and positive change within their communities.
