Girl Scouts of America was founded in 1912 with the purpose to help girls everywhere build character and gain skills for success in the real world. Since that time, the organization has molded itself to the needs and requirements of the changing world. With its purpose of inspiring girls and instilling strong values, leadership abilities, social conscience, and insight about their self-worth, it is inevitable that teaching technology has become an important part of the Girl Scouts' goals.
