New Girl Members
At Girl Scouts, girls are always counting down to the next adventure they'll go on together. With us, you'll make a bunch of new friends and have a ton of new experiences that show you how exciting the world is, and how awesome you are, over and over again.
As a volunteer, you'll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they're capable of more than they ever imagined. Whether you can give a day, a few weeks, or the whole year, it all starts with you.
Start the fun now! Click here to join now!
