The New Troop Challenge

You have the power to make Girl Scouting possible for more girls

We know that girls who participate in Girl Scouts embark on a Lifetime of Leadership!  We offer hundreds of activities in one place to allow girls to try new things, take on challenges, and build community through meaningful hands-on experiences-so why wouldn't you want to expose more girls to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience?

If preparing girls to empower themselves for a lifetime of leadership isn't enough to motivate you-if you participate and are successful in the NEW TROOP CHALLENGE $75 will be awarded to your Service Unit for every new troop started between now and March 1. 

Here is what you need to know:
