The COMAR (Commonwealth Online Membership & Activity Registration) application is a Customer Relationship Management System that has been developed by GSUSA and councils specifically for Girl Scout use.  GSUSA is in the process of implementing COMAR applications in councils nationwide.  Members will benefit in many areas from this new upgrade, however one of most noticeable and immediate changes will be in our online registration process. COMAR is now available for members to use for new registration and re-newing registrations.

    How to Join

    Membership and Registration

     Volunteer with Girl Scouts today.

    Every girl has the ability to lead. But only one in five believes she can.

     

    The mission of Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. This would be impossible without our volunteers: adults who give their time, energy, and passion to provide opportunities and leadership skills that enable girls to learn and grow. As a volunteer, you'll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they're capable of more than they ever imagined. You'll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping them develop skills and confidence that will last long after the meeting is over. Imagine the smiles, the excitement, the memories made--those are the moments you'll share at Girl Scouts.

     

    Explore what being a volunteer could mean for you. We know what it means for girls.

    Can't Wait!

    Girls in grades K-12 can't wait to be part of the largest organization for girls on the planet! At Girl Scouts, you never know what adventure await! You might explore the solar system, venture on a nature hike, become a weather watcher, write and star in a play, enjoy a scavenger hunt, or take an amazing trip. The most amazing part is you'll do it with other girls and caring adults who just might become your friends forever.

     

    So if you can't wait, Girl Scouts is here to inspire you to roll up your sleeves, help your community, earn badges and awards, and enjoy Girl Scout journeys, an exciting way to learn about leadership. Whatever your interest, Girl Scouts has it.

     

    Develop Leadership Skills

    Girls today believe that a leader is defined not only by the qualities and skills one has, but also by how those qualities and skills are used to make a difference in the world. In their own words, they want to be the type of leader who "stands up for his or her beliefs and values," and "tries to change the world for the better." Leadership is "knowing what you believe and putting it into action." As the world becomes more complex and uncertain, understanding how girls see leadership is crucial.
