Ways to Participate in Girl Scouts 

You have options for how your girl participates in Girl Scouts!

Self-Directed Girl Scouts (Grades K-12)

She doesn't have to be part of a troop to be a Girl Scout!

Your girl can participate as a Juliette, which is how we describe self-directed Girl Scouts (also referred to as IRGs or individually registered girls). Juliettes were named after  Juliette Gordon Low who founded our movement in 1912.

Juliettes have the power to build their very own Girl Scout experience by completing Journeys, earning badges and attending council programs that appeal to their interests.

She can also participate in the Girl Scout tradition of community service through take action projects and earning the earning the highest awards.

Traditional Troops (Grades K-12)

Girl Scout troops are groups of girls (often linked with a specific grade and school or community area) that meet once or twice a month and are led by a troop leader with the help of other parent/caregiver volunteers. 

Currently troops are meeting virtually, in-person outdoors, or a hybrid of the two.

Search for a Girl Scout troop.

Virtual Troops (Grades K-12)

Virtual Girl Scout troops are available for girls in grades K-5. These troops are led by our council staff, and meet one time per week through May 2021.
