Girl Scouts offers the best leadership development experience for girls in the world.

Our Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, with proven results. It is based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming that help girls take the lead—in their own lives and in the world. 

Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment. Girl Scouts is proven to help girls thrive in five key ways as they: 

  Develop a strong sense of self. 
  Seek challenges and learn from setbacks. 
  Display positive values. 
  Form and maintain healthy relationships.
  Identify and solve problems in the community.

Start her on the path to becoming a leader!

Will my girl be placed into a troop?

You will be contacted when a troop becomes available in your area. While we can't guarantee you a troop that will fit your needs, we will try our best to accommodate everyone. We appreciate your patience in this process!

We are always looking for volunteers to start troops all year. Volunteers are essential to get troop started and help support them. We welcome adults to let the fun begin now and start a troop in your community! Check out several ways to volunteer and help her shine.

Does a girl need to be in a troop?

No, there are also Girl Scouts who participate and earn badges without being affiliated with a troop. These girls are called Juliettes, named after Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low.

Any girl may register as an individual girl member and do the Girl Scout program independently with the support of an adult. Juliettes can also participate in council-sponsored programs

When can my girl begin her Girl Scout adventure?

With an extended-year membership, your girl can begin her Girl Scout adventure in May! Whether or not your girl is placed in a troop, there are ways for girls to participate.

Is there support for volunteers?

Yes! Troops in a geographic area belong to a larger Girl Scout community called a service unit. Within a service unit team, there are experienced volunteers in leadership roles who help new volunteers. There are also volunteer trainings and resources, both online and in person, offered by the Girl Scout council.

Is financial assistance available?

Yes! There is a limited, council-wide fund that helps cover registration and program-related costs. This fund is supported by generous donors who want to ensure that all girls who want to be Girl Scouts can do so. Learn how to apply for financial assistance.

Girl Scouts serves girls regardless of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, economic status or disability.
