Girl Scouts of Hawai`i

Girl Scouts of Hawai`i is a non-profit organization serving the entire state of Hawai'i since 1917.  We serve more than 3,300 girls in grades K-12 statewide.  Girl Scouts of Hawai`i is chartered by Girl Scouts of the USA, the largest leadership development organization for girls in the world. 

Introduced to Hawai`i in 1917 by Queen Lili`uokalani and a school teacher from Kamehameha School for Girls, Florence Lowe, Girl Scouts has helped tens of thousands of Hawai`i girls to build the courage, confidence, and character they need to make the world a better place.

Many people know of the Girl Scouts but few understand the depth of its program.  The Girl Scout Leadership Experience focuses on girls’ leadership development, their unique definition of leadership is “making the world a better place.”  Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development program in the country with the benefit of 100 years of research and experience on girls’ healthy development and 10 million members throughout the world.

As the preeminent all-girl organization, Girl Scouts provides opportunities for girls to discover their personal best and prepare for a positive future, connect with others in an increasingly diverse world, and take action to solve problems and improve their communities.


In Hawai`i last year, adults involved with Girl Scouts provided almost 118,000 volunteer hours in their communities, with services that are valued at over $2.2 million.  Members of the Girl Scouts are active, compassionate and involved citizens within their local, national and global communities.  Girl Scouts in Hawai`i are involved in a wide range of community work from a 6th grade Girl Scout troop taking teddy bears to comfort sick children at a medical clinic to a Gold Award project involving literacy education for Micronesian children and their parents. 

Girl Scouts of Hawai`i also sponsors special programs to further extend our reach so that every girl, everywhere in the state has an opportunity to participate.  For example, we manage an after school program for girls from low income communities and a program for girls whose mothers are incarcerated. 

Girl Scouts in Hawai`i also have fun! They get to explore a wide range of interests and activities from visiting and sailing on the Hokule`a to participating in events around public role models such as the U.S. Women's Soccer Team and Olympic Gold Medalist (and former Girl Scout Brownie!) Misty Mae-Treanor.
