The Dallas Girl Scouts began in the 1920s. Over forty years later, the Dallas Girl Scout Council expanded to include the Chisholm Trail Council, creating the Tejas Girl Scouts. Ten years later, in 1970, the Tejas Girl Scouts added nine more counties making a total of twenty counties throughout Texas. One of the major foundations of Girl Scouts across the U.S. is to encourage young girls who participated in the club during their youth to later become troop leaders among the members' communities. As a whole, Girl Scout leaders spend millions of hours giving back to and helping their communities.
