Today’s Girl Scouts have more choices and ways to participate than ever before. Girls can have the traditional troop experience or mix and match activities to suit their schedule and interests.
Join a Troop and Build Lifelong Friendships
Join Girl Scouts as a Troop Member
It’s easier than ever before to join a Girl Scout troop. Just provide a bit of information, and then you can search for local troops online.

Be a Juliette and Design Your Own Program
As Juliettes move through the Girl Scout program, they and their mentors receive the same support that troop leaders do, including guides that make completing badges and awards easy, online trainings, and a team of Girl Scout staff members to answer their questions.

What Can a Juliette Do?
Complete Girl Scout Journeys + Badges
Girls can choose from three different Journey books at each program grade level. Journeys guide girls towards becoming a leader in their community. Juliettes can also earn badges, which include a variety of skill-building activities, many of which compliment the Journeys.
Attend Girl Scout Events + Activities
Juliettes can meet other girls in their area while completing Journeys, earning badges, or learning more about the outdoors at council-sponsored events. Service Units also offer many events and service opportunities, which are great for Juliettes to meet other Girl Scouts in their area.
Help Others Through Community Service
Part of the Girl Scout Law is to “make the world a better place”. Juliettes can work on their own or with their Girl Scout community to carry out this Girl Scout tradition. Juliettes can also pass along what they’ve learned, gain leadership skills, and earn special mentoring awards by helping younger Girl Scouts at troop meetings, events, camp, and more.
Participate in the Cookie Program and Snacks + Magazines
Juliettes can fund their Girl Scout activities while learning great business skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Learn more about Cookies and Snacks + Magazines.
