Invitation to Join

You’re Invited to Join the World of Girl Scouts!

Already a member? Log in to renew.

We can’t wait to meet you and share how Girl Scouts can brighten your girl’s world. Join us for an exciting event and get a taste of all the fun she’ll have as a member.

View a full list of all the exciting recruitment parties your girl can take part in, including a virtual Robot Building Party, Toy Business Deisgner Party, Be{YOU}Tiful Party, and Outdoor Art Party! 

Girl Scouts is a way of life that brings out the best in your girl, even in the most challenging of times. While she’s learning about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the outdoors; entrepreneurship; and important life skills, she’s also discovering new ways to make your family and community stronger, kinder, and better for everyone. Plus? Girl Scouts is FUN!

Ready to Join?

Girl Scouts Louisiana East is thrilled to welcome you and your girl! Beginning April 1, 2020, the extended-membership fee is $35 and is only offered to girls and adults who have never been Girl Scout members before. That's an additional $10 over the $25 membership, and membership is paid through September 30, 2021!

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 customercare@gsle.org or call us at 1 (800) 644-7571. We’re here for you!

When your girl becomes a Girl Scout, she’ll:

  • Join a group of local girls—called a troop—for regularly scheduled meetings (either virtual or in person)
  • Make new friends in a space where she feels comfortable to just be herself
  • Have a community of caring adult volunteers to guide her as she tries new things
  • Practice new skills and earn Girl Scout badges and awards
  • Make the world a better place by helping her community
  • Try coding, robotics, engineering and more through hands-on STEM activities
  • Enjoy the great outdoors while learning how to protect animals and the environment
  • Build business smarts through the Girl Scout Cookie Program
Membership Financial Assistance

Membership Financial Assistance

Membership Financial Assistance may be requested by the troop/group leader/advisor on behalf of the girl to cover GSUSA registration fee. Membership financial assistance is only given one time by the council. Troop/groups should make plans during their money-earning activities to assist each girl re-registering. A wise Girl Scout leader once said, “Parents should only pay for Girl Scout membership one time. The girls earn their membership in subsequent years through participation in Girl Scout product sales programs.”  The first $25 earned by each girl should register her for the next year during spring renewal.  The same philosophy applies to membership financial assistance.

Steps to request membership financial assistance:

1.    Register the girl(s) online, stopping at the payment screen.

2.    Utilize the contact link at the top of the website.
        a.  Contact name and information is the person making the request;
        b.  select registration as case type;
        c.  enter “Membership Financial Assistance” as subject; then
        d.  enter the name(s) of the girl(s) needing assistance in the description box including short description of need.
