Recruitment Resources

Do you wish every girl could be a Girl Scout?

We do too. Thank you for extending Girl Scout opportunities to more girls in your community—you’re making a difference in the lives of girls! 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.

Have a family that’s interested? Send them our Girl Scout Family Connection (español) to help them learn what Girl Scouts is all about!

Open your troop to more girls (and volunteers)!

One of the best ways to recruit new girls is to open your troop. Troop leaders and co-leaders can fill out a form to be opened or to update your troop meeting informationon on the Troop Catalog right away.

Spread the word in your community!

Find resources below 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).
