Build her Girl Scout Experience

Each Girl Scout has an experience that is uniquely designed for her interests and schedule! As a member of Girl Scouts, she will participate in fun activities that help her explore, make friendships with other girls, and learn from positive role models. 
 

Ways to Participate

 

Traditional Girl Scout Troops
Volunteer Troop Leaders will lead girls through an engaging Girl Scout experience! Traditional Troops typically meet bi-weekly or monthly for 60-90 minutes to earn badges and participate in fun activities together.

Juliettes
With support from a mentor, Juliettes lead their Girl Scout experience on their own time. Girls participating as a Juliette join council programs, summer camp, and sell Girl Scout Cookies to stay engaged.

Community Outreach
Girl Scout staff work with schools and community centers to break down barriers in underserved areas to provide a Girl Scout experience.

Neighborhood Troops
Girl Scout staff will plan activities for girls! Neighborhood Troops are only available in certain areas and typically meet monthly for 60-90 minutes to earn badges and participate in fun activities together.

Events and Camp
Our local program team has a regular schedule of events and activities that all members can attend on their own or with a Troop. Girls can also join summer camp and year-round outdoor programs!

 

Above Inclusion

Every Girl is Invited

The Girl Scout organization has always welcomed girls from all backgrounds and abilities. In fact, Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts, was partially deaf — and when she started our organization, she was determined to make our program work for all girls.

Including everyone is the foundation on which we build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Communication between leaders and parents can make a world of difference in understanding and working with every girl, regardless of age, background, or abilities.

Girl Scout Program

Girl Scouts are all about making the world a better place. How do they achieve such a big goal? Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a collection of engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, going on awesome trips, selling cookies, exploring science, getting outdoors, and doing community service projects.

All our programs are designed with a research-backed curriculum that centers around fun and friendship. To create engaging experiences, we focus on four core program areas the sparks girls’ interests.
