You can absolutely join Girl Scouts by yourself. This type of membership is known as an Individually Registered Member (IRM). Individually registered members are also known as Juliettes, named after our founder, Juliette Gordon Low. As a Juliette, your experience is led by you and supported by your family. Throughout your experience your caregiver(s) will be a resource for you to stay engaged.
Joining as a Juliette is great for Girl Scouts without a troop available nearby or who want to enjoy Girl Scout programming with their family. They can get started right away by earning badges independently or attending events to meet other Girl Scouts in their area.
Badges signify that a Girl Scout completed all the steps needed to earn this recognition for the new skills they learned. Each badge takes a Girl Scout through the steps of learning about the skill, practicing, and demonstrating it. Badge topics range from the outdoors to STEM, or art, and even career exploration. They’re a great way to try something new and see if you enjoy it.
Take those badge skills further with Journey awards or a Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award. A Journey award allows Girl Scouts to show they know how to take action and make a difference in their community. A highest award shows they know how to solve a problem, permanently.
Love being outdoors? Follow your passion and sign up for weekend camping trips as a Juliette. Camp as often as you want and meet other Girl Scouts who share your enthusiasm for the great outdoors.
Expand your horizons by spending a week at camp in the summer or exploring local state parks. As a Cadette, Senior, or Ambassador (grades 6–12), you can even explore the United States—or the world!—by traveling to other Girl Scout camps.
Gain recognition for your leadership, community service, and other accomplishments with a Council Awarded Scholarship or award opportunity. Check out the award options to see if you're eligible—or begin working to become eligible now!
