Founded by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912 as a private organisation, it was organized after Low met Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting, in 1911. Today, GSUSA has over 3 million members (youth and adult) from all ethnicities, religions, sexual orientation, and communities from across the United States.The GSUSA is a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). Girl Scouts today have six age levels for membership: Daisies (5-7 years old), Brownies (7-9), Juniors (9-11), Cadettes (11-14), Seniors (14-16), and Ambassadors (16-18). There are also membership groups for adult females, especially those in college and university life, to continue the bond and community service. Each Girl Scout makes a Promise to uphold the Girl Scout Law and help humanity with happiness and without any prejudice. Anyone can also volunteer for various roles in their local Girl Scouts set up.
