All About Juliette Girl Scouting

Juliette Girl Scouts, named after our founder Juliette Gordan Low, are registered girl members in grades K-12 who are not affiliated with a troop or troop leader. Instead, you’ll have the flexibility to try all the experiences Girl Scouts has to offer, on your own time, guided by your Juliette mentor!

You’ll participate in our program grade levels (Daisies, Brownies, etc.), earn badges and awards, sell cookies, and much more—all with personal guidance from an important adult in your life. Any girl, K-12, can be a Juliette and she can also go back and forth between being in a troop and being a Juliette during her Girl Scout career.

 

Whether you travel the world or meet new friends at Girl Scout events, your independence and passion will lead you to success both in Girl Scouts and in your life!

Parents/guardians can read All About Juliette Girl Scouting article to learn more.

What Can a Girl Scout Juliette Do?

What Can a Juliette Do?

Girl Scout Juliettes can do anything Girl Scouts in a troop can do. Juliettes learn to Discover, Connect, and Take Action when they:

Complete Girl Scout Journeys and Badges

Girls can choose from 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 complement the Journeys.

Attend Girl Scout Events and Activities

Juliettes can meet other girls in their area while completing Journeys, earning badges, and learning more about the outdoors, STEM, healthy living, and entrepreneurship at council-sponsored events. Service units also offer many events and field trips and service opportunities, which are great ways for Juliettes to meet other Girl Scouts in their area. New this year to Girl Scouts River Valleys will be exclusive Juliette Girl Scout virtual meet-ups and programs.

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 Girl Scout Cookie Program or the Fall Product Program (Snacks & Magazines sale)

Just like Girl Scouts in troops, Juliettes can fund their Girl Scout activities while learning business skills like goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics when they participate in the Cookie Program or the Fall Product Program (Snacks & Magazines sale).

Why Participate as a Juliette?

There are many advantages to participating in Girl Scouts as a Juliette, including:

  • Gain leadership experience. 
  • Have the opportunity to participate in all Girl Scout activities individually, so they can tailor their experience. 
  • Create a well-rounded Girl Scout experience by completing the planning guide for their grade-level on their own time. 
  • Serve their community through individual community service projects and Take Action projects.
  • Have opportunities to connect with other Girl Scouts through council sponsored virtual and in-person events.
Juliette Program Credits (JPCs)

Individual Girl Scouts are not eligible to hold a bank account like troops do. Instead, they receive Juliette Program Credits (JPCs) from selling cookies during the cookie sale and items during the Snacks & Magazines sale. They can also convert money from money-earning activities, or from a previous troop into JPCs by using the deposit form (PDF).

JPCs can be used at Girl Scouts River Valleys’ shops, camps, and for programs. For other Girl Scout activities, girls can turn in JPCs with receipts and a reimbursement form (PDF).

Girl Scout Juliette Mentors

A girl Scout Juliette mentor is a parent or trusted adult who guides a Juliette through her experience. Juliette mentors are provided support customized to the girl’s program grade level. Juliette mentors are invited to join Rallyhood where the mentor will have access to the most up to date program opportunities; including activity plans to earn badges and journeys, Juliette mentor resources and a calendar of events to enhance the Juliette Girl Scouts and Juliette mentor experience.

  • Register as an adult member of Girl Scouts.
  • Seek out and relay information and opportunities for their girl.
  • Help their girl plan her Girl Scout year using the Planning Guides.
  • Connect with their service unit team for opportunities to meet other Girl Scouts and participate in local events.
  • Follow Volunteer Essentials and Safety-Wise to keep their girl safe.
  • Connect with other Mentors in their service unit.

Resources for Juliette Mentor

Juliettes and their mentors should refer to nearly all the same resources as girls who participate in troops and Girl Scout volunteers. Follow the troop leader checklist to find planning guides, take online trainings, and see your year at a glance. All parent/guardian and Juliette Mentors will also be invited to join a Juliette Rallyhood that will provide guided support on program opportunities and special activities you can do with your girl.

 

What Current Girl Scouts Think

 

“I've had the opportunity to work on being self-motivated and I like being able to work on badges and journeys at my own pace.”

—Megan T

“I joined Girl Scouts as a Juliette, so without a troop to immediately connect with, I had no idea what to expect. I was thrilled to find that I was met with a welcoming and innovative community nonetheless!”

—Maddy D
