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 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.
Start a New Troop
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
Mentored Troops center the unique experiences of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) youth and encourage a sense of belonging and sisterhood in a culturally relevant environment. Troops are led by volunteer leaders, who care deeply about making a difference in the lives of girls and their communities. Both adult leaders and Girl Scouts are predominately, but not exclusively, BIPOC. At no cost to families, Girl Scouts in Mentored Troops receive the following during their first year:
- A paid Girl Scout membership fee for one year and placement into an ethnically diverse Girl Scout troop
- A Girl Scout uniform kit and supplies
- Troop funds to financially support your troop’s Girl Scout activities
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.
