Membership Renewal

Her Girl Scout adventure has only just begun. There is so much more to discover and do (indoors and out!), and so much more she's capable of. Now, with new badges and Journeys in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the outdoors; life skills; and beyond, there are even more opportunities to prepare her for the lifetime of leadership, success and adventure she deserves-all in a safe, no-limits place designed by and for every girl. There's even a new badge to help older Girl Scouts get ready for the future!

Renew today!

Attention: Volunteer Support Team Members

The new Girl Scout badges and Journeys are here! That means volunteers you support will be turning to you with questions. Make sure you have all the latest answers!

Join us for a special webcast hosted by GSUSA’s Volunteer & Girl Experience teams especially for Council service teams and Council trainers.

You’ll hear updated information on our new badges and Journeys, learn how your volunteers can get started, and discover how to effectively use the Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) when implementing this new content rollout. Of course, you’ll have the opportunity to get answers to your questions.
