1. Read our General Information and language policy document.  Check out all the info on this site and usagso.org then talk to your daughter about whether Girl Scouts might be for her.
  2. Contact us via email ([email protected]) or the form on our contact page.  Tell us your name, and the name and age of your daughter so we know her troop level (see below).  There might be a waiting list if our troops are full.
  3. Come and join us for a trial indoor troop meeting – for your daughter to see what it’s like and for us to check her English.
  4. If your daughter likes it and we find her English is good enough she can join.  We will add you to our private Facebook group where you’ll get details of each meeting.  (You will need to use Facebook to sign up to each meeting).
  5. Sign up using the on-line registration at usagso.org, although you must check with our registrar before you do this.   We ask that at least one parent also signs up for insurance purposes.  Fill in the application and pay using a credit or debit card.  Yearly registration with USAGSO is $45 per girl and $25 per adult.

Leaders & Volunteers

Girl Scout leaders are volunteers from a variety of different backgrounds: teachers, parents, community members and students. We have seen in our own students and families that Girl Scouting is a great place for girls to learn new things and develop nurturing friendships that support them as they grow into young women. We encourage you to join us as a volunteer!

Please contact your troop Leader or committee member if you can help as a leader or assistant leader.
