Get Involved

Become a Girl Scout

Your new friends can't wait to meet you.

Right now, Girl Scouts are meeting furry friends at their local animal shelters, giggling past lights-out at sleepovers, and learning how their favorite roller coasters work.

Above all else, they’re having a blast—because they know bringing the fun is all about being their true selves, trying new things, and cheering each other on.

Get ready to join the crew and bring a bit more happy to your life.

Become a Volunteer

Help Girl Scouts discover their place in the world.

Ever want to forget everybody else’s expectations and just…be you? When you volunteer with Girl Scouts, you’ll be creating a community where being your unfiltered, goofiest, most authentic self is the absolute best thing you can be.

Our local volunteers lead with their hearts and spark imaginations. They help Girl Scouts explore unique interests and unlock their potential.

We can’t wait to meet you and share how Girl Scouts can brighten your girl’s world. Join us for one of these fun, FREE and interactive virtual events to discover more about the Girl Scout program and opportunities in your community. Please choose one event and RSVP using the link below to receive login information.

Ready to Join?

Girl Scouts of Maine is thrilled to welcome you and your girl! Membership dues are just $40 annually for girls and $25 for adults, but financial aid may be available. Girl Scouts is a great value! Please note that purchasing a Girl Scout membership does not guarantee placement in a troop. Your Girl Scout membership is non-refundable.

Here are 3 ways you and your girl can participate in Girl Scouts:
  1.  Join an existing troop in your community or virtually. Search for an existing troop here. Don’t see one in your area? Try extending the search radius to see more options.
  2. Volunteer to start a new troop in your community or virtually. Form a new troop with a friend! Each troop must have at least 2 unrelated adult co-leaders. If you need help finding a co-leader let us know. To become a troop leader, you must register as a member and a background check is required. Two online trainings are provided to help get you started. We are here to support you with all the tools and resources you need to succeed! Find the steps to become a troop leader here.
  3. Join as an Individually Registered Girl Scout. Design your own Girl Scout experience as an individually registered member, called a Juliette! This option gives girls and families flexibility to participate in a way that works best for them. To register as a Juliette, choose the troop option, scroll to the bottom, and select "Apply to participate without a troop."

However you choose to participate, girls can engage in:

Whether you have questions about starting a new troop for your girl and her friends, joining an existing troop, or something else, send us a note at or call us at 888-922-4763. We’re here for you!

Would you like us to contact you or receive additional information?

Complete the form below and we will be in touch soon.

Here are some tips to help you register:
  • Click the "Join Us" button and choose how you would like to participate:
    • Find troops: Join fellow Girl Scouts for regular meet-ups and adventures! You can search by zip code to find the perfect fit.
    • Find events: Coming summer of 2021
    • Create a troop: Create your own troop where girls can pursue their passions — and where you’ll cheer them on every step of the way.
    • Volunteer: Find volunteer opportunities to inspire girls to aim for the stars.
  • Options that are available within 10 miles of your zip code for your girl's grade will be displayed. To find the best option for you and your family, you may need to expand the zip code radius, or enter your girl's school zip code instead.
  • Be sure to look for the "FORMING TROOP!" in the top right corner. Troops with this listed are still forming and will need caregivers to step up as troop volunteers.
  • You will also have the option to register your girl as an Individually Registered Girl. Some girls prefer to work on their own with an adult family member so they can choose activities they love that fit into their schedules. If you are not interested in a troop option, you can scroll to the bottom and select "Apply to participate without a troop" and follow the prompts to create an account.
  • To renew, click "MY GS/VTK" on our website. You will see a pop up to log in. If you haven’t logged into your account since November, we have upgraded our customer accounts so you will need to click on "Forgot Password" to set up a new login. Once you have logged into your account, please renew (to all your roles, if more than one) and follow the prompts to complete your payment.
  • New adult members can register here. Please scroll down past the four options and select "Join as an adult member." Follow the prompts to add your details and complete your payment.
  • Complete the process by purchasing a Girl Scouts of the USA membership for your girl.
  • If you have any questions, aren't sure what you're looking for, or need help, please contact us at or 888-922-4763 and we'll be happy to assist you!

You won't have to do it alone
