Join Girl Scouts

Your girl is one in a million. She deserves the opportunity to see and reach her full potential.

New troop leaders (and their girl) can join for FREE! Whether she’s exploring the cosmos, camping in the wilderness, or standing up for her beliefs, Girl Scouts is for her. That’s because Girl Scouts helps her shine her 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.

When she joins Girl Scouts, she’ll explore, grow, and do amazing things as she connects with others, her family, her community, and her world.

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 girls 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 girls to develop a sense of belonging and sisterhood with other girls. 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 girls 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 Culturally Specific Troop
(An Option for BIPOC Families)

Join or start an affinity troop that centers the unique experiences of BIPOC girls (Black, Indigenous, People of Color). These troops are led by trained Girl Scout staff or volunteers of color and provide a space for BIPOC girls to find community as they experience all that Girl Scouts has to offer. Troops can be community or school based. Families can expect culturally responsive leadership programming as their girl develops a sense of belonging and sisterhood with her troop. If this sounds like a good fit for your girl, contact the Community Engagement team for more information!

Join and Participate Individually as a Juliette

Some may think of Girl Scouts as a troop-only activity, but Girl Scouts offers opportunities for girls to participate without being in a troop. Individually registered girls 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! Girls 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.
