What is Girl Scouts?
Girl Scouts is more than an activity—it’s a Movement dedicated to building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Why do girls love being Girl Scouts?
Girl Scouts is a way of life that brings out the best in your youth, even in the most challenging of times. While they’re learning about STEM, the outdoors, entrepreneurship, and important life skills, Girl Scouts are also discovering new ways to make their family and community stronger, kinder, and better for everyone.
How does it work? What’s a “troop”?
Groups of Girl Scouts, called troops, typically meet weekly or every other week for an hour or two. Guided by adult volunteers, troop members choose the hands-on activities and projects that excite them, try new things, and cheer each other on. Together, they earn badges to reflect their successes and show the world what they’re made of.
What’s the goal?
Making sure youth are given the opportunity to reach their full potential by developing values and skills that will lead them to happier lives.
When can I get started?
If your child is ready to let their best self shine and start creating the world they want to see, they're ready to be a Girl Scout today. A Girl Scout membership is $25. A Girl Scout membership year starts on October 1 and lasts until September 30 of the following year, but you can get started early by joining or renewing your membership in April each year.
Is financial assistance available?
Girl Scouts of Central Texas welcomes youth members in any financial situation. We make funds available to cover membership, events and workshops, troop dues, supplies, and camp. Please register as a member before applying for financial assistance.
