Girl Scouts of Connecticut is accepting new members.

There are a number of ways in which girls can participate in Girl Scouting. In addition to joining troops, girls may enter Girl Scouts as an individual member and participate in a series, events, travel opportunities or enjoy the summer camps throughout the state. Every Girl Scout, no matter how she enters the Girl Scout program, will benefit from the Girl Scout leadership experience.

From a Girl Scout Daisy in kindergarten learning about animals and making new friends, to a Girl Scout Ambassador in high school making a sustainable change in her community by pursuing the Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouting, the Girl Scout leadership experience will help her discover herself and her values, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place. The Girl Scout Research Institute shows that women who were Girl Scouts have a stronger sense of self, greater civic engagement, and higher educational attainment and income than those who weren't Girl Scouts.

Girls work with adult mentors to help determine which activities they are interested in and best suit their needs. Girl Scouts of Connecticut relies on volunteers to make many of its programs and activities possible. Adults who are interested in making a difference in a girl's life are also encouraged to join.
