Juliette Girl Scouts
Self-Directed Membership Option
You don't have to be part of a troop to be a Girl Scout! You 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.
Juliette mentors are parents or trusted adults who guide a Juliette through her self-directed experience. Mentors should:
- Join as an adult member of Girl Scouts
- Follow Volunteer Essentials and Safety Activity Checkpoints
- Seek out and relay information and opportunities for Juliettes to create a well-rounded experience
- Stay connected to other Juliette mentors in their service unit
- Visit the
