Any girl between the ages of 5 to 17 years old can be part of the largest organization for girls on the planet!
At Girl Scouts, you might explore the solar system, venture on a nature hike, enjoy a scavenger hunt, or take an amazing trip. And you'll do it with other girls and caring adults who just might become your friends forever. From the minute you share the Girl Scout Promise and Law—words girls have been saying for 100 years—you'll Discover, Connect, and Take Action to: Make the World a Better Place!
Adults - it's never too late to be a Girl Scout.
Girl Scouts come in all age groups—all you have to want is to make a difference in the lives of girls. Adults 18 years of age or older can join Girl Scouts to serve as a mentor or speak at a Girl Scout event, volunteer in a troop or group, offer services at the council level, or simply say "I believe in the Girl Scout mission and want to show my support by becoming a member."
Membership is what you make it. Pitch in your expertise or build a skill you've always wanted to develop. Speak any foreign languages? Dabble in Web design? Your Girl Scout council needs your talent! You can spend an hour, a day, or more, depending on your schedule. We're looking for members who believe in girls and volunteers who represent the diversity of the world we live in—women, men, young adults, senior citizens, people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, and of course our treasured Alumnae.
By becoming a Lifetime Member of Girl Scouts,
you will be supporting the Lifetime Membership Endowment Fund, which is used to develop and extend Girl Scout membership to all girls. Lifetime membership as a Girl Scout adult is available to any individual who accepts the principles and beliefs of the Girl Scout Movement, pays the one-time lifetime membership cost, and is 18 years of age or older or is a high school graduate or the equivalent.
You will receive from GSUSA:
- A lifetime membership certificate signed by the Chair of the National Board of Directors
- A lifetime membership card
- A lifelong connection with a mission-focused, values-driven organization that helps girls develop as happy and resourceful citizens
