A personal invitation is the best way to invite girls to a troop. Often girls and families aren't aware of opportunities they can have in Girl Scouts. Troop leaders can encourage girls to give out invitations to join the troop (then they can get the Invite a Friend patch!), or troop leaders can send out letters to girls and families in their community. We've included a template letter below for inspiration!
My daughter is in Mrs./Mr. ___'s (insert grade level) class at ____ school. I'm a leader in her Girl Scout troop, and we would love to have your girl join us!
I have been involved with Girl Scouts for more than __ years and can tell you that your girl will learn, do, and be amazing things—and of course have FUN!
Our troop will meet the __ and ___ every __ day of the month from __pm to __pm. To join, simply go to gswo.org/join, and when it asks you to select a troop, search for Troop _____.
If you have any questions about Girl Scouts, please don't hesitate to reach out!
(a.k.a. ___’s Mom)
