Keep her engaged and inspired in challenging times

In challenging times, our Girl Scout grit shines the brightest. Girl Scouts press on. They persevere. They find ways to overcome. That’s why we’re prepared to be a source of consistency for you and your girls when you need it most. Even while we’re apart, you can access the Girl Scout experience in a way you can enjoy right now.

While many of the things she was looking forward to are canceled, Girl Scouts is still happening. From home and online, for as long as she needs to, she can:

  • Keep the Girl Scout experience going and stay connected while earning badges through online activities with the NEW Girl Scouts at Home
  • Participate in live virtual events and safe service projects that keep her engaged and inspired
  • Gain tangible, innovative problem-solving and life skills
  • Grow confidence in her outdoor skills and learn how to be a champion for the environment 
  • Expand her imagination through hands-on STEM activities 

And as things continue to evolve and change, we’ll continue to adapt to meet her needs until we can come together again. 

Connection is more important than ever as we navigate these challenging times. So whenever you’re ready to renew your Girl Scout membership, we’ll be here for you.

May 31 | Flock Patch

To celebrate the fourth year of our Early Birds, girls who renew by May 31 will receive an early Early Bird patch featuring the whole flock!

Gabby the Go-Getter: She’s bold, honest, and determined to succeed.
Izzy the Innovator: Thinking outside the box is her specialty.
Rosie the Risk-Taker: Courageous and strong, she’s keen to try new things.
Lacy the Leader: She’s confident, responsible, and committed to changing the world for the better.

We estimate these will be delivered to troop leaders in early fall.

June 15 | Two Free Adult Memberships

Volunteers are the real MVPs!

As a thank you for all you have done, and the value of your contribution to the girls in your troop in the coming year, we are offering two free 2021 volunteer memberships to all troops. We recommend utilizing this incentive for troop leaders, but if your troop leaders are lifetime members or have already renewed, you can use them for any adult volunteer in your troop.

Requests are due June 15, 2020 at 11:59 pm, and only one troop leader per troop should complete the free volunteer membership request. Please coordinate with the other volunteers in your troop. If any volunteers are in more than one troop, be sure to coordinate so two troops aren't requesting memberships for the same person!

Once you complete the form, we will renew your membership on your behalf; no need to log into MyGS to renew those volunteers!


June 15 | Lacy the Leader Patch

Girls who renew by June 15 will receive the green Lacy the Leader patch, the final patch of the collection!

We estimate these will be delivered to troop leaders in early fall.

June 15 | THRIVE 2020 Patch

Girls who renew and complete the requirements for the THRIVE 2020 Patch Program by June 15 will receive the patch for free!

Once you have renewed your membership and completed the requirements for the patch program, complete the form below! Your THRIVE 2020 patch will be delivered with the other Early Bird patches. We estimate these will be delivered to troop leaders in early fall.


August 31 | More Cookie Program Proceeds

Troops who renew five girls and two troop leaders* by August 31 and sell five items in the 2020 Fall Product Program will receive an additional 5¢ per box of Girl Scout Cookies sold in 2021!

*three girls and two troop leaders for Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador troops

Financial Assistance

We know this time has brought about financial hardships for many families in our council and around the world. We are committed to offering financial assistance to any girl who needs it.

Families can request financial assistance when renewing their memberships in MyGS.

Troop Leaders can request financial assistance on behalf of members of their troop by completing this form. We will then renew the girls' memberships on your behalf; no need to renew them in MyGS.

Trouble Logging In?

Q: Why isn’t my username working?
A: Your username is typically your email address. If you have more than one email address, try each. You can also use the “Forgot Your Password?” link to send a reset email to your email address. If you’re still having trouble, contact your council’s Customer Care team.

Q: Why aren’t I getting the password reset emails?
A: The password reset emails come from, so please make sure it’s added to your safe senders list. If you requested the reset email before marking our email address as safe, check your spam folder. If you’re still not receiving the email, contact your council’s Customer Care team to verify that your username/email address is correct.

Q: How do I reset my password when I no longer have access to the email address associated with my account?
A: Your council’s Customer Care team can easily change your username/email address without requiring you to recreate your account.

Q: Why can’t I see my family when I log in?
A: There are a couple reasons this could happen:

  • Another adult family member may be listed as the preferred contact on the account. That person must log in to renew. Contact your council’s Customer Care team if you’d like to be listed as your household’s preferred contact.
  • You may have a second or duplicate account with a different email address. Try a different username. If that works, be sure to contact your council’s Customer Care team to merge the two accounts into one.

Q: Why can’t I see my troop(s) when I log in?
A: There are several reasons this could happen:

  • Troops are listed on a separate tab from your family. If you have more than one troop, look for the pull-down menu to change between them.
  • Check your member profile to make sure you’re listed as a volunteer in the troop.
  • Not all troop volunteers can access the troop tab. Check with your council to see which volunteer roles they allow to access the tab.
  • If your background check has expired, you may lose access until it is up-to-date.
