Get Started


If you can think it, you can do it. Whatever your interest, Girl Scouts has it.

Learn about the Girl Scout Pathways – ways girls and volunteers participate that meet your needs and interest and fit your schedule and lifestyle. After that, go ahead and fill out the Interest Form​ and take a look at the Recruitment Event Locator for a recruitment event near you!

Any girl in grades K-12 can become a Girl Scout by accepting the Girl Scout Promise and Law, paying the $15 annual membership dues and following safety guidelines. However, no girl will be denied membership in Girl Scouts for financial reasons. 


So… you want to be a Girl Scout volunteer and make a difference in the lives of girls and young women? Where do you start? A good starting point is with the online Application and Background Check. After that, you can start your Fundamentals and position trainings. Whether you know you want to volunteer now or are just thinking about it, these trainings will give you a close-up view of what Girl Scouting is all about.
