Hosting a Girl Scout recruitment event is a great way to help new girls and families join the fun, and we have the tools you need to make your event a success. Whether you’re opening a service unit event up to new girls, increasing visibility at a school or community event, or hosting a Girl Scout Information Meeting, these guides can take you from the planning stages to the day of.
Grow Your Troop this year and welcome a new member — or several! — to your troop by Thursday, March 1 to be entered to win fun prizes! See the “News and campaigns” section below for more details.
If you're a troop volunteer looking for girls (and adults!) to join you, or a membership recruiter promoting Girl Scouts throughout your community, we want to help you spread the word and invite new girls to experience the fun.
Below, find resources for your recruitment efforts, from promoting a service unit or troop event to hosting a fun Girl Scout Information Session to help start new troops (with the support of your service unit team and our staff members, of course).
Thank you for extending Girl Scout opportunities to more girls in your community — you’re making a difference in the lives of girls!
One of the best ways to recruit new girls is to open your troop on the Opportunity Catalog. Want to open your troop, or know someone else who does? Troop leaders and co-leaders can fill out this form to be opened on the Catalog right away.
