Girl Scout Juliettes
Juliette Girl Scouts (aka individually registered girls) are registered girl members, in grades K-12, who are busy, independent, self-confident girls and young women who want to be a part of something larger – Girl Scouts! Meeting in troops is one way to be part of the Girl Scout experience, but when there aren’t available troops in the area, a troop no longer meets, or a girl becomes too busy with extracurricular activities or sports, becoming a Juliette will allow her to continue her Girl Scout experience on an individual basis.
As a Juliette, a girl won’t attend troop meetings; instead, she will work on Girl Scout programs with the guidance of a caregiver or another adult mentor. She will decide what activities to participate in and which earned recognitions/awards she wishes to complete. A Juliette may also attend regional and council events, trips and badge opportunities, council-offered programs and more.
Why Should I Become a Juliette?
There are many advantages to participating in Girl Scouts as a Juliette:
- Gain leadership experience.
- Have the opportunity to participate in all Girl Scout activities individually, so they can tailor their experience.
- Create a well-rounded Girl Scout experience by completing the planning guide for their grade-level, on their own time.
- Serve their community through individual community service projects and Take Action projects.
What Can a Juliette Do?
Juliette Girl Scouts can do anything Girl Scouts in a troop can do. Juliettes learn to Discover, Connect, and Take Action when they:
Complete Girl Scout Journeys + Badges
Girls can choose from three different Journey books 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. Locate these events in The Sky’s the Limit or on the GSVSC online events calendar. Your local Girl Scout county/city service unit also offers many events and service opportunities which are great for Juliettes to meet other Girl Scouts in their area. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-777-5100 so we can help you contact your local volunteers for information regarding local community opportunities.
Join the Adventurers (ages 11-17)
Adventurers is an action-oriented group of older Girl Scouts who are seeking exciting, stimulating activities to challenge their capabilities, broaden their horizons, and increase their self-confidence. It is for girls age 11-17 and in grades 6-12. Members often participate in rock climbing, caving, canoeing, hiking and other similar high-adventure activities. Adventurers may be active in regular Girl Scout troops, but individually registered girls can also participate in this Program Pathway. As a group, the girls brainstorm, research and vote on several high adventure trips each year. Trips and activities take place on weekends, school breaks and summer months, and may include an overnight camp-out. As Adventurers’ events are planned, they will be posted online here. For more information about joining Adventurers, contact email@example.com.
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 Sale and Fall Product Sale
Juliettes can fund their Girl Scout activities while learning great business skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Individual Girl Scouts are not able to hold a bank account. Instead they receive "program credits" from participating in the Cookie Sale and Fall Product Sale. Credits can be used directly at our local Girl Scout shop, local camps and for council programs. Contact us for details regarding "program credits": 540-777-5100 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Individual Girl Scouts that choose to participate with Adventurers can also earn program dollars under the Adventurers group and should contact email@example.com for more information.
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. Training is available online.
Travel with Girl Scout Destinations (ages 11-17)
Juliettes can experience leadership opportunities and cross-cultural understanding through regional, national, and international travel.
