Girl Scouts History

Girl Scouts began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts' founder Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low, who believed in the power of every girl. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Our mission sounds simple, but it ultimately changes lives by building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Girl Scout Troop #75142 is comprised of four ambitious, fun-loving girls (ages 12 to 14) who reside Bolingbrook, IL. The Scouts and The Parents of Troop #75142 have made a commitment to forge stronger bonds with one another and to positively impact our communities. With your supports, we can reach those goals!

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 from 2:30pm to 4:30pm, The Parents of Girl Scout Troop #75142 hosted Don't be mean behind the screen: Perceptions of cyber-bullying and tactics to address it. The workshop's purpose was to explore the perceptions of cyber-bullying and to offer useful tactics and informational resources to combat this issue. The interactive workshop was conducted by Megan Brooks (Chief Investigator, High Tech Crime Bureau) from the Will County State's Attorney's Office. Scouts from Troop #75142 presented the video they created to address cyber-bullying, and the event provided a vehicle for the fulfillment of the requirements for the Silver Award as they ventured through their MEDIA journey. The event was followed by a "meet and greet" dessert reception. This event was open to those who are ages 9 and older.
