Girl Scouts is the premier leadership program for girls, letting girls themselves determine how they will spend their time and the impact they can make in their community and the larger world.

GSEMA welcomes non-binary youth and transgender boys in addition to anyone who identifies as a girl who are in grades K-12. Adults over 18 can join as members to volunteer.
Additionally, you can sign up to receive our monthly enewsletters, which highlight upcoming programs, council updates and other important news.
Troops can begin anytime during the year, with most troops meeting from October through June, and some meeting a few times during the summer. We encourage troops to meet at least twice per month. Meeting days and times are determined by the troop volunteer team. We recommend that troops meet in community centers, schools or other public buildings.
The annual Girl Scout membership fee is $50 for youth members and $25 for adults (financial aid is available). Many troops collect dues ($5-7 per month) and participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program to help cover the cost of badges, books, and activities throughout the year.
Yes. Cost should not prevent any girl from becoming a member or participating in Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts' activities or programs. Financial Assistance is granted based on need, within the limits of the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts budget.
No. The membership pin shows that one is a Girl Scout. Girl Scouts can display insignia on their sashes or vests. When asked to represent Girl Scouts in public, members should be in uniform or dress for the occasion with something that identifies them as Girl Scouts. The Girl Scout Shop carries many options.
When making a payment through our website, including our gsEvents program registration site, please note that we accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover cards.
