Every member (youth and adult) pays a national membership fee of $25. Financial assistance is available for qualifying families. Become a Girl Scout member by registering online.
Once you have completed payment, please email our customer care team at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a troop number. A staff member will be in touch to finish setting up your troop!
While a staff member sets up your troop, we will email you a link to complete your background check. Once submitted, the process typically takes a few days, so feel free to start reviewing the online resources available to you.
It’s never too early to start talking about your new Girl Scout troop! Even while you finish the preliminary details, you can talk to your friends, neighbors, and other families in the community about your plans. The more youth you welcome to your troop, the more adults you will have available to help.
Once you have three youth, two leaders, and complete your online training, you can start meeting with your troop! Together, you and your co-lead will decide on a meeting location, frequency, date and time, and troop start date.
Now you are ready to share the fun and excitement as a Girl Scout troop leader! You have an incredible adventure ahead as you help Girl Scouts in your troop learn new skills, explore new adventures, make new friends, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
