Girl Scouts is for the whole family! While the Girl Scout program is designed to put girls in the leading role of this adventure, every star needs their supporting cast to help them shine. Girl Scout Family and Friends support troop leaders, plan events, share their skills and so much more. Your active participation in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience will create lifelong memories for the Girl Scouts in your community and you!
Before you make the decision to join the Girl Scouts Overseas family there are lots of opportunities for you to learn more about Girl Scouting. You can ask your local troop to sit in on a meeting and the USAGSO catalog of online programming is open to everyone!
All girls and active adults must be registered to participate in Girl Scout meetings and events. Girl Scout registration covers membership fees for USAGSO and Girl Scouts of the USA, as well as insurance. If you run into any challenges getting registered you can ask your troop leader for help or contact our customer care team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you are registered check out our Girl Scout World Shop to purchase swag for yourself or a girl member. Sport that trefoil with pride!
When you register be sure to opt in to receive communication from USAGSO. The Globe is USAGSO’s e-newsletter, it provides both volunteers and parents with updates and events from overseas, other Stateside councils, and GSUSA. If you are not getting The Globe, check your spam/junk mail box or message email@example.com.
Be sure to follow the USA Girl Scouts Overseas Facebook page and Instagram to keep up with overseas news and programming and connect with the Girl Scout community worldwide.
Though you do not have a specific role, you can learn more about Girl Scouts, the overseas community, and the volunteer opportunities available to you, on gsLearn. Girl Scouts of the USA’s digital learning platform, gsLearn has training and informative vlogs to support participation at any level.
Once you are registered, jump into the fun! Whether you regularly attend meetings to support a troop leader, participate in the planning of an event or share a skill on a specific occasion, you are making a huge difference in the life of a girl in your community.
