Join the Go-Getter Patrol: Girl Scouts are often asked to take the lead through their participation in special opportunities. Whether they inspire audiences by giving a speech, answer questions on a panel, present the flag, or sing Girl Scout songs, these activities help girls connect with their community!

To join the Go-Getter Patrol, simply complete this form for a girl, or the whole troop, and you will be added to a list of Go-Getter Girl Scouts!

Girl Scouts of all ages are welcome to apply. When an opportunity arises that matches your indicated interests, our team will be in touch!
