You can absolutely join Girl Scouts by yourself. This type of membership is known as an Individually Registered Member (IRM). Individually registered members are also known as Juliettes, named after our founder, Juliette Gordon Low. Juliettes choose how to participate based on their schedule and interests.
Joining as a Juliette is great for Girl Scouts without a troop available nearby or who want to enjoy Girl Scout programming with their family. They can get started right away by earning badges independently or attending events to meet other Girl Scouts in their area.

Badges signify that a Girl Scout completed all the steps needed to earn this recognition for the new skills they learned. Each badge takes a Girl Scout through the steps of learning about the skill, practicing, and demonstrating it. Badge topics range from the outdoors to STEM, or art, and even career exploration. They’re a great way to try something new and see if you enjoy it.
Love being outdoors? Follow your passion and sign up for weekend camping trips as a Juliette. Camp as often as you want and meet other Girl Scouts who share your enthusiasm for the great outdoors.
Expand your horizons by spending a week at camp in the summer or exploring local state parks. As a Cadette, Senior, or Ambassador (grades 6–12), you can even explore the United States—or the world!—by traveling to other Girl Scout camps.
Individual Girl Scouts (Juliettes) participate in the Fall Product Program utilizing their Service Unit Fall Product Manager as their “Troop Leader.” They are entered into the Fall Product Platform and given a “troop” number. The Service Unit Fall Product Manager will ensure they receive an order card and access to our online Fall Product platform. They can take in-person orders and collect money using the order card while also sending out emails to take online orders. At the end of the program, the Service Unit Fall Product Manager will place their orders into the system, give the money to the Service Unit Manager or Treasurer to deposit into to the Service Unit account. The Service Unit will make the payment for the Fall Product ordered with the order form for the Individual Girl Scouts (Juliettes) to GSCWM and keep the “Troop Proceeds” for the Individual Girl Scouts (Juliettes) in the Service Unit Account. Girls then receive their rewards/patches. The proceeds stay with the Service Unit and the Individual Girl Scouts (Juliettes) submit requests to the service unit for them to make payments for Girl Scout Programs or any additional funding needed for her Girl Scout Experience.
Individual Girl Scouts (Juliettes) participate in our Cookie Program as Cookie Bosses. The Cookie Boss Program is a way for Individual Girl Scouts (Juliettes) to participate in the Cookie Program and fund their Girl Scout Pathway. An email to all Individual Girl Scouts (Juliettes) inviting them to participate in the Cookie Boss Program is sent in December to the email address we have on file. Individual Girl Scouts (Juliettes) who participate in the Cookie Boss Program are entered into our eBudde platform and our Digital Order Card Platform by the Cookie Boss Team Leader (GSCWM Staff). They will receive all needed paperwork and access to the Digital Order Card Platform from the Cookie Boss Team Leader. They will communicate all order card orders and girl-delivery online orders to the Cookie Boss Team Leader who will then enter all orders to be picked up at the Cookie Cupboard. Cookie Boss girls submit 100% of the costs of the cookies, (via cash, charge, money order, or bank check) to GSCWM by three pre-determined dates or as they pick up additional cookie orders. Cookie Boss girls receive the earned rewards and/or a higher level of cookie credits (after selling at least 125 boxes).
Cookie Boss girls do not receive cash – they earn Cookie Credits. Cookie credits can be used for any Girl Scout related activity, such as their Girl Scout membership, GSCWM programs fees, GSCWM camps and any merchandise purchased at one of the GSCWM Leadership Center stores. All activities must be paid via phone or a paper registration form if using Cookie Credits. There is also a Cookie Credit Allocation Form for outside Community Partner programs that is submitted to the GSCWM Product Program Manager for payment.
Individual Girl Scouts (Juliettes) can participate in money-earning activities and are subject to the same guidelines as Troop Money-Earning. The Service Unit Manager or Treasurer submits the money –earning request to GSCWM, and the Service Unit Manager or Treasurer remits payment per requests by the Individual Girl Scouts (Juliettes). Funds can be used for their Girl Scout Leadership Experience (programs, travel, higher awards, and community partner programs, etc.)
