FAQs

What Do Girl Scouts Do?

Groups of Girl Scouts from the same community, called troops, typically meet weekly or bi-weekly for an hour or two. Hand-in-hand with adult volunteers—often parents or caregivers—girls select exciting hands-on activities and projects, try new things, and cheer each other on. 

In a troop, girls earn badges for each new skill they learn and challenge they overcome. Badges are grouped into four areas—outdoors, entrepreneurship, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), and life skills. Girls can also participate in events hosted by our council and go to camp. As girls enter middle school, they can dig deep into what interests them—they might learn to code, make a PSA, travel to new places, or go on an outdoor adventure. There's also the potential for earning college scholarships!

How Does Girl Scouts Benefit Girls?

Our Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, with proven results. It is based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming that help girls take the lead—in their own lives and in the world. 

Research shows that girls learn best in an all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment. Girl Scouts is a place where she’ll practice different skills, explore her potential, take on leadership positions—and even feel allowed to fail, dust herself off, get up, and try again.

Girl Scouts is proven to help girls thrive in five key ways as they:

  • Develop a strong sense of self
  • Seek challenges and learn from setbacks
  • Display positive values
  • Form and maintain healthy relationships

How Do I Start My Own Troop?

Give girls opportunities to have fun, meet friends, and make a difference in their communities and in the world by bringing the world of GIrl Scouting to your local school or neighborhood. 

To start a troop, you’ll need two adults to volunteer, yourself and one other—one of which must volunteer as the troop administrator. A troop should consist of at least two approved, unrelated volunteers, and five girls.

Once you join Girl Scouts, pass the background check, and get trained, you’ll be ready for your first adventure! 

To get started, complete our Volunteer Interest Form and select the "I want to start a troop" in the volunteer role section. If you already know where you want your troop to meet and have at least five girls interested, let us know!
