FAQs

Who are Girl Scouts?

Girl Scouting is for every girl, grades K-12 (ages 5-17). The only requirement is that they accept the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Adult women and men 18 years and older can be Girl Scout members too!

Many adult members are volunteers who work with girls or other adults to provide the Girl Scout Program to girls in their community.

What do Girl Scouts do?

Girl Scouts do just about everything that girls like to do, from sports to science to community service to just having fun! What makes it a “Girl Scout activity” is the mentoring that takes place when girls work with trusted, trained, caring adults under the guidance and values inherent in the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

What does it cost?

Girls and adults may join Girl Scouts by paying a $15 annual membership fee to our national organization, Girl Scouts of the USA.

Local troops set their own troop dues for supplies and activities. Financial aid is available so that no girl is denied the opportunity of being a Girl Scout.

How do I find out if there is a troop in my daughter's school that she can join?

How can I volunteer?

If you have a particular skill or just a desire of helping girls grow strong, there is a place for you in Girl Scouting. Whether you have a lot of time to give or just a little, you can make a difference in the lives of girls.

Do girls have to wear a uniform?

Uniforms are not required, however, many troops choose to wear them to show that they are part of the largest organization dedicated solely to girls. Uniform components are available through the Council Shop.

Can men be Girl Scout troop leaders?

Absolutely! Every Girl Scout troop requires two or more adults (minimum one unrelated female) with one adult designated as the leader.
