Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee is the premier leadership organization for all girls to have the opportunity to pursue greatness, create sustainable change in their communities, and actively transform the world around them now and for future generations.
Locally, the first troops were started in 1917, with the Nashville Girl Scout Council receiving its charter in 1926. Today, Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee serves 39 counties that include more than 11,000 Girl Scouts and 4,000 volunteers. We prepare girls for their future by educating them in the areas of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), Outdoor Adventures, Life Skills, and Entrepreneurship. Together we are empowering girls and changing the world.

Girl Scout Mission
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Girl Scout Promise
On my honor, I will try: to serve God* and my country,
to help people at all times, and to live by the Girl Scout Law.
Girl Scout Law
I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do,
and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.
*The word “God” can be interpreted in a number of ways, depending on one’s spiritual beliefs.
When reciting the Girl Scout Promise, it is okay to replace the word “God” with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate.
Our Core Values
Girl Scouts are leaders.
We provide all girls with unique opportunities to lead. We understand true leadership is taught, learned, and reinforced in a variety of settings. Therefore, it is our job to consistently and proactively remind all girls they are leaders and provide them with a multitude of opportunities to lead.
Girl Scouts are bold.
We build a foundation for girls to empower themselves, take risks, and stand up for their beliefs. Our events and programs encourage girls to boldly pursue their unique interests and ideas.
Girl Scouts are committed.
We teach girls the value of working hard. Girl Scouts seek challenges, work as a team, and build resilience to overcome obstacles.
Girl Scouts are dedicated to their community.
We are committed to helping girls leverage their own unique gifts and talents to make a difference in their communities. By our own example, we inspire girls to put service above self.
Girl Scouts are versatile.
We provide girls with dynamic experiences that allow them to grow as individuals and contributing members of society. They develop lasting relationships, learn to embrace both success and failure, and are equipped with the skills needed to thrive in an ever-changing world.
