Approximately one in every two adult women (49%) in the United States has—at some point—been a member of Girl Scouts. There are currently 59 million Girl Scout alums living here in the U.S.

If you were a Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette, Senior, Ambassador, or an adult volunteer—you were a Girl Scout! Remember, once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout!

Just like you remember, girls today are grabbing their sit-upons for a song around the campfire. They’re bettering their communities with food drives and educational workshops. They’re still earning plenty of badges.

Girls today are also building apps and robots, discovering their inner entrepreneur, and gaining the confidence they need to change our world for the better!

Girl Scouting works!



How would you like to help girls—just like the one you used to be—uncover more of those special moments? The moments when you realized you could do pretty much anything you set your mind to. By sharing your talents, stories, and time with us, you can inspire a new generation of Girl Scouts.

If you’re interested in finding out how you can help today’s girls or simply reconnect with Girl Scouts, contact Molly Hall at
