Become a Girl Scout

At Girl Scouts, the next opportunity to stand up, speak up, and take the lead is never far away. With us, you’ll discover the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader) in you, and watch her shine, again and again.

Will you find a sustainable solution to a problem in your community? Will you explore the great outdoors? Write the next great American play? Build a robot? Change the world?

With us, the possibilities are truly endless. Discover all you can be and everything you can accomplish when you have the right tools and a safe space to shine—and work together to change the world.

How to join Girl Scouts:

Our troops are volunteer led. To find a troop with openings in your area, follow the 3 easy steps below. If you don’t find a troop that works for your girl and family, check out Meet Us In Person to attend an informational meeting with other interested members in your community. If you’re ready to start a troop, visit How to Start a Troop


Click the "Girl Registration" button below to visit our registration site and tell us a bit about yourself.


Enter your zip code to find nearby troops that have openings for new girls, and choose one that will work best for your family! Troops indicating “located near” are open to girls from multiple schools, while “serving” means they serve one specific school or community.


Complete the process by becoming a member of Girl Scouts. Yearly membership dues are $40, and there is financial assistance available! Don’t forget to register yourself as a “Troop Helper” by clicking on “add another member.”
