Don’t have time to be on a traditional troop? Here is the solution… become a Juliette! Girls can join Girl Scouts as Juliettes (individually-registered girls, not in troops) and can participate in different types of activities. These activities provide alternate membership options (pathways) outside of a troop. Pathways include events, camp, and/or a series. For example, a girl can participate in an event pathway simply by registering for program activities in this publication.

wherever she lives, whatever challenges face her, however great the journey to what she can become.
