You can absolutely join Girl Scouts by yourself. This type of membership is known as an Individually Registered Girl (IRG). Individually registered girls choose how to participate based on their schedule and interests.
Joining as an IRG is great for Girl Scouts without a troop available nearby or who want to enjoy Girl Scout programming with their family. They can get started right away by earning badges independently or attending events to meet other Girl Scouts in their area.
Badges signify that a Girl Scout completed all the steps needed to earn this recognition for the new skills they learned. Each badge takes a Girl Scout through the steps of learning about the skill, practicing, and demonstrating it. Badge topics range from the outdoors to STEM, or art, and even career exploration. They’re a great way to try something new and see if you enjoy it.
Follow your passion and sign up for council and service unit events as a IRG. Attend as often as you want and meet other Girl Scouts who share your enthusiasm for specific interests.
Be a boss and start your own business by participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Individual girls can sell cookies with a separate rewards structure.
Not only will you earn funds to put toward fun Girl Scout activities, but you’ll also help ensure Girl Scouting is possible for other members just like you.
