Become a Girl Scout Alum

Since 1912, millions of women have had their lives positively influenced—sometimes even transformed—by their Girl Scout experience.

If you are one of the 50 million women who were Girl Scouts as a girl, or if you were a volunteer or a staff member who worked at the national or local level to help Girl Scouts become leaders at home and in their communities, you are forever connected to a rich and vibrant movement.

Visit the official GSUSA Girl Scout Alums and Supporters page to join the Girl Scout Network. Once you register, you’ll receive a monthly digital newsletter, invitations to memorable local and national alum events, and more.

Get Involved with Our Council

Join our new alum group and you’ll be invited to council activities and events, complete service projects, travel on trips together, and more! Any alum—including former and current volunteers and staff—can take part! Whether you were a girl member for 2 or 10 years, once you become a Girl Scout, you’re always a Girl Scout to us! To join our group and receive information, fill out the form.

The Girl Scout Alum Difference

The Girl Scout Research Institute recently conducted an original study to learn how being a Girl Scout affects alums in their adult lives—and the findings are astounding! You won’t want to miss what respondents had to say about how the benefits of Girl Scouting extend beyond their childhoods and higher educations and into their careers, demonstrating their devotion to making the world a better place through a lifetime of volunteer work and civic engagement.
