You know Girl Scouts as the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And now, we've created a community of likeminded advocates who feel passionately about coming together in support of girls.
It's the Girl Scout Network: a powerful community of adults—Girl Scout alums and supporters from across the country—who believe in preparing girls to be the leaders of the future.

Whether you were a member for two years or 10 years, once you have become a Girl Scout you’re always a Girl Scout to us!

Regional Alum Groups
Alum groups are a great way to make new friends, expand your network, and stay involved in Girl Scouts. All across the country, Girl Scout alum groups do community service, volunteer at council events, reminisce on their Girl Scout experience, and do fun things like wine and paint nights or lunch meet-ups. Whatever experience you're looking for, your alum group can make it happen. If you have you already started an alum group or you're interested in starting one, email Info@GirlScoutsToday.org.
Girl Scout Advocates
Girl Scout Advocates are alums and supporters of Girl Scouts who assist with community relations in their region. Advocates will use their skill sets to recruit more members, plan events for alum, and support the Girl Scout movement.
