Juliette

Girl Scout Juliettes are individually registered Girl Scouts, who choose to be a part of the Girl Scout experience but may be waiting for a troop to get started in their area, may have participated in a troop that no longer meets, or just prefers the Girl Scout experience on an individual basis.

Juliettes have access to a robust offering of Girl Scout experiences and can take the lead to pursue activities that match their individual interests and schedule. As a Juliette, girls work on Girl Scout programs with a parent or other adult mentor. Each girl decides what activities to participate in and which awards she wants to earn.

Girl Scout Juliettes is a girl-led, family driven Girl Scout experience. As a caregiver of a Juliette, you and your Girl Scout will be partners, shaping and sharing in the fun of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

 

Parent/Caregiver Participation

As a Juliette’s parent/caregiver, guardian, or mentor, you will participate in guiding your girl’s Girl-led experiences, and:

  • Register online as a Juliette and pay the annual $25 national membership dues. This membership fee provides insurance coverage when she is involved in Girl Scout activities.
  • Add yourself as an adult Girl Scout member or choose a volunteer role and pay the annual $25 membership dues (criminal background check included), take our online training, and attend Girl Scout activities with your girl.
  • Support your girl’s commitment to Girl Scouting. This means guiding her through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, earning badges and awards, taking her to events, supporting Take Action projects, and more.
  • Help your girl participate in Girl Scout product programs by helping her set goals, practicing her pitch, following safety guidelines, checking over her orders, and assisting with product delivery.
  • Provide funds for special events and activities, earn funds through product program participation, or request financial assistance from council.
Your Support Network

Our council is divided into geographic areas called service units. Your service unit consists of girls and adults from your neighborhood and surrounding schools. It is led by volunteers who support local Girl Scout members in delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Service units organize local meetings and provide support to volunteers as well as give your Juliette opportunities to interact with other girls in the community.

Each service unit is led by a volunteer service team that works in partnership with a regional Community Membership Executive (CME), a GSNEO employee. If you ever have questions or need help navigating her Girl Scout experience – or she decides to join a troop – please contact Customer Care by phone at 800-852-4474, by email at customercare@gsneo.org, or by Live Chat.

What Can a Juliette Do?

Juliette Girl Scouts can do anything Girl Scouts in a troop can do. As a Juliette you have the same opportunities as girls in traditional troops, and are able to pick and choose the way you want to participate in Girl Scouts.

Complete Girl Scout Journeys + Badges
Girls can choose Journeys at each program grade level. Journeys guide girls towards becoming a leader in their community. Juliettes can also earn badges, which include a variety of skill-building activities, many of which complement the Journeys.

Attend Girl Scout Events + Activities
Juliettes can meet other girls in their area while completing Journeys, earning badges, or learning more about the outdoors at council-sponsored events. Service Units also offer many events and service opportunities, which are great for Juliettes to meet other Girl Scouts in their area.

Help Others Through Community Service
Part of the Girl Scout Law is to “make the world a better place”. Juliettes can work on their own or with their Girl Scout community to carry out this Girl Scout tradition. Juliettes can also pass along what they’ve learned, gain leadership skills, and earn special mentoring awards by helping younger Girl Scouts at troop meetings, events, camp, and more.

Participate in the Cookie Program and Magazine and Snack Program
Juliettes can fund their Girl Scout activities while learning great business skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Learn more about Cookies and the Magazine and Snack Program.

Earn Girl Scouting’s Highest Awards
The Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards are the highest awards in Girl Scouting. Juliettes can earn these awards by leading a take-action project to improve their local community.

Travel with Girl Scout Destinations
Juliettes can experience leadership opportunities and cross-cultural understanding through regional, national, and international travel.
