 About Girl Scouts

It's All About Fun, Friends, and Fantastic Opportunities

Girl Scouting is for every girl, everywhere—where today's girls can become tomorrow's leaders. Membership in Girl Scouts is open to girls in grades K- 12; women and men over 18 can join as adult members.

Most girls join a local troop or group for fun and friendship, but they also find out about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities—the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society.

The Girl Scout program is based on the needs and interests of girls. All members:
• Share the Girl Scout Promise and Law
• Pay national dues of $15
• Follow safety guidelines
