Today we celebrate a special day for Girl Scouts across the nation. Not only is today one of the most imaginative and fun days of the year, but today is also Founder’s Day – the 156th birthday of Juliette Gordon Low, who created and started the Girl Scouts movement in 1912. Juliette Gordon Low was a courageous woman who eschewed the sentiment of her time and taught girls that they could truly change the world through acts of kindness. Before women could vote, own property, or even work outside of their own homes, Juliette was teaching girls how to transform themselves into confident, independent, successful, and hardworking individuals in order to bring their dreams to life.
So in honor of her Birthday, Ranch Oaks Service Unit celebrated Founder's Day Halloween Style.
Teaching girls to be supportive of one another is a lifelong skill that girls can develop at an early age to make friends, support one another, end comparison and competition and combat bullying.
That’s why we created the National Stand Beside Her Project, so that all girls can be appreciated for their talents, strengths and uniqueness.
As girls mature, they can work to further develop the skills they have learned to create cultural change in their community and themselves.
We’ve created activities for each Girl Scout Grade Level that highlight a part of the Girl Scout Law. Review the Girl Scout Law with your girls and go back to the appropriate line to begin your activity.
Teach your girls to “Stand Beside Her” and you’ll be teaching them to make the world a better place!

Bat Week is an international, annual celebration designed to raise awareness about the need for bat conservation. Bats are amazing creatures that are vital to the health of our natural world and economy. Although we may not always see them, bats are hard at work all around the world each night - eating tons of insects, pollinating flowers, and spreading seeds that grow new plants and trees.
