What is a Girl Scout Juliette?
A Girl Scout Juliette is a girl who participates in Girl Scouts as an individual member. It is named in honor of the founder of Girl Scouts, Juliette Gordon Low. Today's girls may sometimes find it hard to fit all their desired activities into their busy schedule. If you are a Girl Scout who does not wish to join a troop, or are unable to find a troop that meets at a convenient time or place, you can still be a Girl Scout!
If you choose to be a Girl Scout Juliette, you can participate in special events, earn awards, camp, and even sell Girl Scout Cookies! You can select as many or as few activities that interest you and fir your schedule.Back to Top

Participate in Product Programs
The Fall Product Program (magazines, nuts & candy) starts in October and the Girl Scout Cookie Program starts in January. Girls receive incentives for participating in product programs. Information on how a Girl Scout Juliette participates is mailed prior to each program. Any profit is deposited into the fund for Girl Scout Juliettes to offset the cost of mailings and recognitions earned by the Girl Scout Juliettes.
Join Color Guard
The Girl Scouts Heart of Central California Color Guard participates in various parades, festivals and ceremonies throughout the year. Each participant decides how involved she would like to be with the program and how many events she would like to attend.
