Girl Scouts congratulate the Boy Scouts

The BSA and GS-USA sure have taken different paths to get where they are today, and as a parent of one of each I can see good and bad points in each program.  They are both quite different programs, but the end game of each – to build young people of character, prepare them to make moral and ethical choices over their lifetimes, give them citizenship and leadership skills they will take with them into adulthood – remains the same.  And both have been and are succeeding for the last century (or nearly a century).

The Girl Scouts celebrate 98 years of service this year, formed by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912.  It would be neat if they’d have what I think would be their first ever National Jamboree on their centennial, I know my daughter would be pumped about attending.  Let’s get on that ladies!
