Join Girl Scouts

Your Girl is One in a Million. They Deserve the Opportunity to See and Reach Their Full Potential.

New troop leaders (and their girl) can join for FREE! Whether they're exploring the cosmos, camping in the wilderness, or standing up for their beliefs, Girl Scouts is for your kid. That’s because Girl Scouts helps them shine their brightest. Girl Scouts are confident—even in the face of challenges. They’re kind even when others aren’t. They’re problem solvers who see opportunity where others get stuck. Essentially, a Girl Scout is your kid at their best.

Girl Scouts explore, grow, and do amazing things as they connect with their community, their family, and their world.

Is your girl getting ready to enter kindergarten next year? Registration for those in pre-K (entering Kindergarten in fall 2023) opens April 1, 2023.

Join Options

Start a New Troop

Create a brand new troop and invite all your friends! Parents, caring adults, and community members like you make a key difference in the lives of children by guiding them through the Girl Scout experience. When you sign up to be a troop leader, you’ll have the opportunity to be a role model and create a space for them to develop a sense of belonging and sisterhood with other Girl Scouts. As a leader of a new troop, you may have questions about what to do and how to do it—we’ll be with you with support and guidance each step of the way.

Join a Troop

Find a troop to join! Troops are groups of Girl Scouts and their families who come together for a full year of adventures, including trips, events, and special programs. At meetings—led by Girl Scout volunteers—Girl Scouts get to explore a wide range of activities including the outdoors, science, entrepreneurship, and life skills. Browse our troop catalog by grade, location, interest, language, and more.

Join or Start a Mentored Troop for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Girl Scouts

Join or start a Mentored Troop that centers the unique experiences of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) Girl Scouts. Through a Girl Scout BIPOC troop, your kid is supported by mentors and youth who look like them. With culturally relevant programming, children's identities and experiences are centered and celebrated. Girl Scouts is where they can bring their full selves.

Join and Participate Individually as a Juliette

Some may think of Girl Scouts as a troop-only activity, but Girl Scouts offers opportunities for them to participate without being in a troop. Individually registered Girl Scouts are referred to as “Juliettes,” after our founder Juliette Gordon Low. Girl Scout Juliettes can do everything girls in troops do, like attend virtual and in-person programs and camps, earn badges and awards, and even sell cookies! They will take the lead in deciding what activities appeal to them and tailor their experience to suit their particular interests. They can also choose how often they want to participate—regularly throughout the year or occasionally for special programs like camp or council events.
