Join Girl Scouts
When you unleash your inner G.I.R.L., you can accomplish anything!
At Girl Scouts, the next opportunity to stand up, speak up, and take the lead is never far away. With us, you’ll discover the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader)™ in you.
Become a Girl Scout
When you become a Girl Scout, you are part of a national movement and are placed within your local council (Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys). National member dues are $25 annually and run from October 1, or the day you sign up, until September 30 each year.
Financial assistance is available for membership, uniforms, and activities.
Register Your Girl
Girls can join from kindergarten through high school. Need to know more so you can decide what’s right for you? Visit BeYourSelf.GirlScoutsRV.org, our website for prospective members.
*For girls entering Kindergarten, fill out our Pre-K registration form so that we can make sure you’re all set for when registration opens for this fall. Registration will open for incoming Kindergarteners by mid-summer.
Register as an Adult or Volunteer
All adults who join Girl Scouts will have the option to volunteer with us. Your gift of time, as a core volunteer or an occasional helper, helps girls grow into leaders. Learn more about volunteering and the roles available.
Spanish-Language Registration Forms
Parents, guardians, and girls trust that Girl Scouts is a safe place for them, and we take that trust seriously. We are committed to maintaining policies and procedures that create a safe environment for girls to discover, connect, and take action. Criminal background checks are one of the ways we can help ensure that girls are safe with us. Girl Scouts River Valleys’ policy is to conduct criminal background checks on all new volunteers, and to repeat them on all volunteers every three years.
When you begin registering as an adult Girl Scout member, you will be guided through a background check process. If you are already a Girl Scout member and would like to volunteer, contact us for assistance setting up and completing your check. Girl Scouts River Valleys covers the cost of background checks, so there is no cost to our volunteers.
