Join Girl Scouts

Your new friends can't wait to meet you.

Right now, Girl Scouts are meeting furry friends at their local animal shelters, giggling past lights-out at sleepovers, and learning how their favorite roller coasters work.

Above all else, they’re having a blast—because they know bringing the fun is all about being their true selves, trying new things, and cheering each other on.

Get ready to join the crew and bring a bit more happy to your life.

And grownups? Whether you have kids, grandkids, or no kids of your own, you can have a front-row seat to the fun and community, too. Press play and volunteer with Girl Scouts. You’ve got what it takes to change girls’ lives.

Find a Troop and Join Today!

Find a Local Troop

By clicking the Join Now button above, you'll be able to search for troops with spots open in your area by zip code! 

Don't see a troop in your area or unsure which one to choose? Complete the Girl Scout Interest Form and a local Girl Scout staff member will reach out to you with opportunities in your area.

Troops are constantly being formed, so speaking with a Girl Scout staff member could be a great way to learn about a troop before it's up online to choose from! If there are no current troops available in your area, your girl can join a council-wide Virtual Troop until we find the right fit for her!

How to Start/Lead a Troop

It is the support and leadership of caring adults – like you! – who make Girl Scouts possible. As a troop leader, you’ll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping girls develop crucial skills and confidence to launch them into a lifetime of leadership.

Whether you're interested in leading a troop, but have a few questions first, or you've decided to start your new adventure as a troop leader, we're here for you and ready to help you get started!

Become a Juliette (Independent Girl Scout)

Become a Juliette

Some may think of Girl Scouts as a troop-only activity, but Girl Scouts continues to offer opportunities for girls to participate without being in a troop. 

Individually registered girls are referred to as "Juliettes," after our founder, Juliette Gordon Low. Girl Scout Juliettes can do everything girls in troops do, like attend virtual and in-person programs and camps, earn badges and awards, and even sell cookies! Girls can take the lead in identifying badges and programs that appeal to them, and can participate frequently (regularly, throughout the year) or infrequently (by attending camp or participating in a program or two).

Financial Assistance

At Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ (GSCSNJ), we are invested in every girl. We believe that every girl who wants to be a Girl Scout can be a Girl Scout, regardless of financial situation. To help welcome in every girl and adult member, GSCSNJ offers financial assistance, also referred to as Council Cares, to those in need.  

GSCSNJ welcomes every girl and volunteer, regardless of their income. We make funds available to cover the following:

  • Membership fee
  • Programs
  • Uniform supplies
  • Summer Camp fees
Financial Assistance Requests are accepted year-round.

Each financial aid application is reviewed by GSCSNJ. The amount of funds granted will vary based on need and available funds. GSCSNJ Council Cares funds are limited, and resources are used wisely to assist the greatest number of eligible members.
