     The Girl Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA), is declaring 2012 as “Year of the Girl” to celebrate girls, and to recognize their valuable leadership potential.

    Their hope is to build a coalition of like-minded organizations and individuals “in support of balanced leadership in the workplace and in communities across the country.”
This announcement comes as Girl Scouts USA prepares to celebrate its 100th birthday in 2012.
     Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts of the USA is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls with 3.2 million girl and adult members worldwide.
Girl Scouts is the leading authority on girls' healthy development, and builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
     Girl Scouts USA serves girls from every corner of the United States and its territories, and also serves American girls and their classmates attending American or international schools overseas in 90 countries.
