Juliette Girl Scouting

Juliette Girl Scouts are registered girl members, in grades K-12, who are not affiliated with a troop. They participate in a way that fits their schedule, attending events and participating in activities that meet their needs and interests. As a Juliette, a girl won’t attend troop meetings; instead, she will work on Girl Scout programs with the guidance of an adult. She decides what activities to participate in and which earned awards to complete. A Juliette may also attend community and council events.

Why Should I Become a Juliette?

There are many advantages to participating in Girl Scouts as a Juliette:

  • Gain leadership experience
  • Have the opportunity to participate in all Girl Scout activities individually, so they can tailor their experience
  • Create a well-rounded Girl Scout experience by completing the planning guide for their grade-level, on their own time
  • Serve their community through individual community service projects and Take Action projects.

Juliette Girl Scouts can do anything Girl Scouts in a troop can do. As a Juliette you have the same opportunities as girls in traditional troops, and are able to pick and choose the way you want to participate in Girl Scouts

What Can a Juliette Do?

Juliette Girl Scouts can do anything Girl Scouts in a troop can do. As a Juliette you have the same opportunities as girls in traditional troops, and are able to pick and choose the way you want to participate in Girl Scouts.

Complete Girl Scout Journeys + Badges
Girls can choose Journeys at each program grade level. Journeys guide girls towards becoming a leader in their community. Juliettes can also earn badges, which include a variety of skill-building activities, many of which complement the Journeys.

Attend Girl Scout Events + Activities
Juliettes can meet other girls in their area while completing Journeys, earning badges, or learning more about the outdoors at council-sponsored events. Service Units also offer many events and service opportunities, which are great for Juliettes to meet other Girl Scouts in their area.

Help Others Through Community Service
Part of the Girl Scout Law is to “make the world a better place”. Juliettes can work on their own or with their Girl Scout community to carry out this Girl Scout tradition. Juliettes can also pass along what they’ve learned, gain leadership skills, and earn special mentoring awards by helping younger Girl Scouts at troop meetings, events, camp, and more.

Participate in the Cookie Program and Treats & Keeps
Juliettes can fund their Girl Scout activities while learning great business skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Learn more about Cookies and Treats and Keeps.

Earn Girl Scouting’s Highest Awards
The Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards are the highest awards in Girl Scouting. Juliettes can earn these awards by leading a take-action project to improve their local community.

Travel with Girl Scout Destinations
Juliettes can experience leadership opportunities and cross-cultural understanding through regional, national, and international travel.

Can Juliettes participate in the Cookie Program?
Yes! Juliette Girl Scouts can do anything Girl Scouts in a troop can do. As a Juliette you have the same opportunities as girls in traditional troops, and are able to pick and choose the way you want to participate in Girl Scouts.


F.A.Q’s

When can I get started taking orders? What do I need?

  1. Register for the Girl Scouts program
  2. Does your girl already have a current 2020 membership? Then you must complete the Parent Permission Form (input "0000" as the troop # and "zdaniels@gsgatl.org" as Cookie Volunteer email address). All of the materials needed to get started are printable (including order cards) on the Cookie Resource page.

     

    Do I need to use my own bank account?
    Yes, Juliettes are their own individual troops and are responsible for their sales and proceeds. Adults may create a new separate account with the bank of their choice for the cookie season and use that information in place of their personal account. To set up your automatic drafts please fill out the Electronic Payment Form. (DUE February 1 to pick up at Count N Go and recieve initial order rewards)

    How do I pick up cookies?
    Each adult is responsible for picking up their own cookie orders at Count N Go and Cookie Cupboards.

    What are the Juliette cookie rewards? Do the individual girls receive the monetary proceeds from their sale?
    Juliettes at every level—from Daisies to Ambassadors—can earn rewards. In addition to a fantastic line-up of items and experiences. Yes! Juliettes can earn Cookie Dough, which can be applied to membership fees, camp, Badge & Sash purchases, and more. “Troop proceeds” are pooled together among all Juliette girls. The proceeds per box are used for any Juliette girl upon request for a High Award Grant, to provide an end of year bridging ceremony, fun activities like Movie Meet-Ups and more. This year Juliettes will have their own special end of season celebration for all Juliettes who sold even 1 box of cookies!

    Can Juliettes host Cookie Booths? What do they wear?
    Yes! Please follow the process outlined in your managers guide to secure locations. Cookie Booths must be supervised by an adult at all times. They can wear their uniforms (Juliette patch instead of troop #) or any Girl Scout appropriate apparel. Need to find these items? They are at your local Badge & Sash store!

    I still have questions. When can I ask them?
    Take a look at the webinar provided; it’s a great learning tool. Also most of your answers are in the Troop Cookie Manager’s Guide. Can’t find the answer? Email Zaneta Daniels at zdaniels@gsgatl.org or for technical questions email cookies@gsgatl.org.

Juliettes will gain access to all Girl Scout Badge and Journey materials upon registration through their MyGS account.

  • Here's how to use the VTK - When the word "Co-leader" is used, think of the adult guiding your girl through her Girl Scout program. When the word "Troop" is used, think of your Juliette.
