We are Service Unit 11 in Association 32 aka SU 32-11! We are part of the Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital (GSCNC) serving girls in Monocacy, Poolesville, Dickerson, Beallsville and Barnesville, Maryland.
This website provides an overview of what Girl Scouts do, how to get involved in Girl Scouts as a girl or an adult, who is on our Service Unit team and all about product sales. It provides ideas for Troop Activities. It also recognizes and profiles those girls in our SU who have achieved their Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. It lists those adults who have been recognized as well. Lots more too! Be sure and look around.
Let's Take the Lead Like a Girl Scout!
While some people still think of us as just cookies, campfires, and friendship bracelets, Girl Scouts are so much more.
Girl Scouts are big thinkers, groundbreakers, and role models.
Girl Scouts design robots, start garage bands, and improve their communities—and yes, they sell the best cookies on the planet.
When she's a Girl Scout, she’s also a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™.
Go-getter She’s bold, honest, and determined to succeed. In her mind failure is no reason not to get back up and try again, and again, and again. That explains why half of all U.S. businesswomen were Girl Scouts.
Innovator Thinking outside the box is her specialty, so she’s always looking for a creative way to take action. A clear correlation: 75 percent of current female senators were Girl Scouts.
Risk-taker Courageous and strong, she’s keen to try new things and embrace the unfamiliar. It's no wonder that nearly all of the 40 women who have flown in space were Girl Scouts.
Leader She’s confident, responsible, and committed to changing the world. Here's proof: Every year, Girl Scouts collectively spend more than 75 million hours improving their communities. These traits define girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. This is the Girl Scout DNA. It could be part of your DNA, too—whatever your age, gender, or background. The only question is, are you ready to take the lead...like a Girl Scout?
What are YOU waiting for?! Join today!!
Girl Scouting is for every girl, everywhere—where today's girls can become tomorrow's leaders. Membership in Girl Scouts is open to girls in grades K- 12; women and men over 18 can join as adult members.
Most girls join a local troop or group for fun and friendship, but they also find out about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities — the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society.
It's never too late to join. The Girl Scout program is not cumulative. You do not have to start in kindergarten. You can join in high school. You can join as an adult. Any time of year is the right time. You do not have to wait for the fall. To join, click here.
