New! Girl Scouts Alumnae Association

Looking to reconnect with members of your old Girl Scout troop or your leader? Check out the new Alumnae Association online!

Girl Scouts of the USA, in partnership with local councils, is delighted to announce the arrival of the new Girl Scouts Alumnae Association: Online Alumnae Community. Our Online Alumnae Community is a safe and secure environment for connecting and keeping in touch with fellow Girl Scouts, councils and Girl Scouts of the USA, and is open to all:

· Girl Scouts over 18 years of age
· Current and former Girl Scout volunteers, and
· Current and former Girl Scout staff

We invite you to register and connect with others on this dynamic online alumnae community. You will be able to create a personal profile, upload photos, network, search for other Girl Scouts, read national and council news, and much more.

Signing up only takes a moment and is free! To register and create a profile, click here: Girl Scouts Alumnae Association.

Once you register via "Join Us", you can also connect with councils around the country by joining as many council groups as you wish. You will see that some councils currently do not have site information or events posted. Please check back often as more councils will come on board throughout the year, and we will regularly add new content and features to enhance your online experience.

See you there!

Volunteer Brand Resources

A few weeks ago Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada hosted a volunteer brand training to introduce volunteers to our new brand assets, discuss how these assets could be used in practical application, and learn more about what types of template resources volunteers would like provided to make their job easier.
Here's what volunteers identified at the meeting:
  • flyers
  • certificates
  • thank you cards
  • invitations
  • recruitment pieces (i.e. brochures, postcards)
We appreciate the feedback and are working to create each of these items in an editable format that can be downloaded from our Web site. In the meanwhile, if there is something not included on this list that could be beneficial to our volunteers, please post in the comment section of this blog, or email me directly at

Thanks again to all of the volunteers for attending our brand training. We received a lot of great ideas that we have forwarded on to Girl Scouts of the USA!

Kindest Regards,
