Did you know you don’t have to be part of a Girl Scout troop to be a Girl Scout? Girl Scout Juliettes are individually registered members who get to experience all the fun and amazing things Girl Scouts do, but on their own schedule. This is an excellent option for girls who can’t commit to a certain time, live far from the closest meeting space, or would rather choose their own Girl Scout path! With guidance from a parent/caregiver or another advisor of their choosing, girls can learn, grow, and thrive as a Girl Scout Juliette.
The Juliette program is Girl Scouting custom-made for you! It’s a great way to mix and match your unique interests with Girl Scout participation – special events, weekend workshops, leadership projects, or travel opportunities that improve your skills and meet your interests and needs. After registering as a Girl Scout Juliette through My GS, you will receive an email with ways to get started. There is also a section of the Volunteer Toolkit, our digital planning tool for volunteers, for Girl Scout Juliettes so their advisor has everything they need to support their go-getter! And don’t hesitate to reach our to our Help Desk of your local membership director with any questions!
