At Girl Scouts, the possibilities are endless. There are no limits when you become a Girl Scout. No matter what activity or event girls work on, they will experience a lifetime of leadership skills that will help them become the best version of themselves! As girls navigate through these uncertain times, Girl Scouts can give them a way to maintain wellness and social interaction, and be a part of a program that has lifelong benefits. While many programs and sports are postponed during these times, Girl Scouts remains open and ready to work with girls.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Girl Scouts?

    Girl Scouts isn’t just a moment in her life, it’s a movement dedicated to building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

    Why do families love us?

    Girl Scouts is a way of life that brings out the best in your girl, even in the most challenging of times. While she’s learning about STEM, the outdoors, entrepreneurship, and important life skills, she’s discovering new ways to make your family and community stronger, kinder, and better for everyone.

    How does it work?

    Girls can be a part of Girl Scouts in many ways.

    ·       Joining a troop: Groups of Girl Scouts, called troops, typically meet         weekly, biweekly, or monthly for an hour or two. Guided by adult         volunteers—often parents and caregivers—girls select exciting         hands-on activities and projects, try new things, and cheer each         other on. Together, they earn badges to reflect their successes and         show the world what they’re made of.

    ·       Joining a council-led troop: Girl Scouts are led by council staff         through the same experiences that they would get through their         local troops. For now, council-led troops are held virtually and         meet once a month.

    ·       Her own path: Girls can also participate in Girl Scouts on her own         (not joining a troop) through virtual experiences, “badge in a box”         programs delivered to your door, and so much more.  

    What is the goal?

    Making sure girls see and have opportunities to reach their potential isn’t just about helping them earn better grades, make better decisions, and lead happier lives (though it helps with those things too!). It’s about creating a more fair, equal, and compassionate world where every girl has a seat at the table and can make her dreams come true. Check out our values in the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

    How can you get involved?

    We’re excited to welcome you and your girl! Whether you want to start a new troop for your girl and her friends or join an existing troop, get started today. Need help? Contact our customer care team at customercare@girlscoutshcc.org.
