Building a robot, making a difference in the world and making new friends are some of the things a girl in grades K-12 can expect by joining the Girl Scouts.

There are a number of ways in which girls can participate in Girl Scouting. In addition to joining Troops, girls may enter Girl Scouts as an individual member and participate in a series, go to events, travel opportunities or take part in summer camp.

As a girl-led and volunteer-based organization, Girl Scouts relies on volunteers. Adults who are interested in volunteering are also needed.
