Girl Scout Juniors
Girl Scout Level: Girl Scout Junior
Grade Level: Fourth and Fifth Grades
What Juniors Do:
Junior Girl Scouts are finding out who they are and which paths work for them as a girl and as an individual. They have adventures, learn things about themselves and others and complete interest projects which will allow them to discover, connect, and take action to make the world a better place.
Girl Scout Juniors make the decisions as to what their Troop will do and they run their own meetings (with an adult volunteer to supervise of course). They gain confidence and character through planning their Troop's activities for the year.
Juniors may also work on the Leadership Award, Junior Aide, My Promise, My Faith and the Bronze Award.

Girl Scout Cadettes can wear the Girl Scout Membership Pin, showing they belong to Girl Scouts of the USA, and the World Trefoil Pin, signifying membership in a worldwide Movement. Girls can also buy a Junior sash or Junior vest to display Interest Project Awards and other insignia. Click to view a chart which shows how to wear the Girl Scout Junior insignia.
How to Join:
Any girl from K-12, from any neighborhood and any background can become a Girl Scout at any time during the year. The traditional and most well known Girl Scouting experience is through Girl Scout Troops. A girl may also join Girl Scouts as a Non-Troop Affiliated (NTA) Girl Scout. To register your daughter as a Girl Scout, please find your school district or the school district your daughter attends and contact your local field director. If you do not live in Nassau County, please use Council Finder to find a Girl Scout Council in your area.
