We understand there can be a lot of questions about Girl Scouts, so we’ve created 2 FAQs to answer the most common questions.
Did you know that on average girls who stay in Girl Scouts for three or more years are more successful?

We’re in the final days of extended year! Don’t miss your chance to get a jump on Girl Scouting with Extended Year Membership!
We’ve already talked about how Girl Scouting is a year-round experience, and now we have the best way to get started! Our Extended Year Membership gives you the fun of Girl Scouts the rest of this year AND the entire next year as well.
Regular membership is $25 per membership year, which runs October to September. Extended Year Membership gives you the rest of the 2018-2019 year AND the 2019-2020 year for only $35.
That means you can attend our exciting upcoming programs, go to camp, find your troop, and learn what it’s like being a Girl Scout ahead of the fall rush. You give yourself an edge now instead of rushing around during the busy back to school season.
For pre-k girls, this means they can join right now with Extended Year and have a whole summer of fun before the year kicks off in October. We even have a special Daisy Launch initiative, featuring activities and parties throughout the summer for our new Daisies.

We’re a few weeks into our annual Spring Renewal and we’re blown away by how many excited Girl Scouts we have coming back next year! If you’re planning to remain in Girl Scouts, Spring Renewal is the time to re-register for the next membership year.
While you can wait until the fall, renewing now gives you the opportunity to win amazing prizes AND earn college tuition rewards points. All girls and co-leaders who renew before midnight on April 30 are entered into a drawing for three $200 Amazon gift cards. That’s three for girls, three for adults! Troops who are 100% renewed by this time are entered into a drawing for two sets of tickets to your favorite local museum or zoo.
The SAGE Tuition Rewards are really something special. Throughout the entirety of Spring Renewal (through May 31), all girls and co-leaders who renew will receive 2,500 points and 3,500 points respectively. What that means is renewing your membership can earn your girl $2,500 for college and you $3,500 to share with anyone you choose under the age of 18.
Plus, the earlier you renew, the more prizes you can win! With every drawing, we pull from everyone who’s renewed to that point, whether it was the start of the campaign of the day before. What are you waiting for?
It’s hard to believe there’s only one month left of our current membership year. Looking back, 2017-18 was filled with so many amazing programs, events, and opportunities, but we know 2018-19 is going to be even better.
With the new year starting up soon, it’s important to make sure you and/or your girl have renewed their Girl Scout membership by September 30. To learn more about why this is important, check out this video from Christine Kirwan:
Don’t forget about the prizes
If you watched the video, you heard about the drawing for the last August Target gift card as well as the upcoming surprises for those who have renewed. Yes, that means you still have chances to win! Plus, even if you renewed your membership prior to September or even in the spring, you can still win! How cool is that?
Don’t let your membership lapse and miss out on all of the amazing rewards that come with being in a Girl Scout. It’s more than just the prizes we give out, too. As the preeminent leadership organization for girls, we build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We want to give her the opportunities to experience new and exciting activities that help her discover her strengths so she can grow into a G.I.R.L. (go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, and leader).
With only three weeks left, Spring Renewal is winding down but the incentives are still amazing. If you renew before June 1, you are still eligible for exclusive events in the fall, drawings for Amazon gift cards, and the guarantee of Sage Tuition Rewards.
If you aren’t sure what that means for you, check out the video below:
Basically, Sage Tuition Rewards is a partnership with more than 350 colleges and universities across the United States, including some right in our backyard like RIT and Canisius. Every point you receive translates to $1 to go toward college tuition, meaning renewing as a girl is $2500 in college rewards and as a co-leader that’s $3500 in college rewards. You can combine these amounts in an account, which means you’ve earned $6000 for college just this year.
The best part is they’re transferable. Anyone who’s younger than a high school senior is eligible to use and apply the points, making them the perfect gift for your daughters, sons, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren!
Don’t miss these (and other great prizes) by renewing your Girl Scout Membership today!
Spring Renewal kicked off April 1, but there’s still time to enjoy the incentives that comes with renewing your membership early.
With Girl Scouts, your girl will turn the question ‘can I?’ into the statement of confidence ‘I will!’ We believe there’s no challenge we can’t overcome together. We are every day optimists. Self-starters. Problem-solvers. Adventure-seekers. Change-makers. In short, we empower girls of courage, confidence, and character, and renewing your girl’s membership puts her on the same path.
Now through May 31, renew you and your girls membership to enjoy the following incentives! While many involve contests, renewing early guarantees each girl and co-leader renewed receives Sage Tuition Reward Points.
If you’re unfamiliar with this, a SAGE point equals $1 in tuition/scholarship at more than 400 participating colleges and universities. In short, renewing your girls membership for $25 turns into $2,500 in college savings!
