Juliette

A Juliette is a Girl Scout member who participates in activities open to her program age level with the support of a parent/caregiver, guardian, or another adult mentor. Since a Juliette is not affiliated with a troop, she can mix and match her unique interests through council-sponsored programs and events, year-round camping, travel opportunities, Girl Scouting’s highest awards, and more!

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.

TOOLS TO GET YOU STARTED

The website is your access to our member community (MyGS), events calendar and registration site, Pixie Plus, social media groups, Live Chat, and more. A typical Girl Scout year is made up of a blend of experiences and opportunities as the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is different for every girl, based on her needs and interests. Below are the tools you will need to successfully support your Girl Scout:

  • GSNEO Virtual Troop Meetings provide girls of the same program age level a space to create, innovate, and connect with each other on our public Facebook group or password-protected Zoom meetings.
  • Girl Scouts at Home instructional videos are easy to follow and a fun way to earn badges and Girl Scout awards. Visit gsneo.org/girlscoutsathome for additional Girl Scouts at Home programming.
  • The Volunteer Toolkit is a digital platform where Girl Scout badge activities are at your fingertips! Visit gsneo.org > MyGS > Volunteer Toolkit
  • The Online Learning & Resources Nook gives Juliette parents, guardians, or mentors access to training videos you can complete at your convenience. Visit gsneo.org > Nook
