Welcome to GSCI Theme



Named after the founder of Girl Scouts, Juliette Gordon Low, the Juliette program is for girls who are unable to participate in a traditional troop setting or who prefer to participate independently. With adult help, Girl Scout Juliettes may participate in all the same ways a traditional Girl Scout does.

All Girl Scout Juliettes

  • receive a newsletter every other month that includes activities to work on at home such as art and science activities and community service projects;
  • may participate in the Girl Scout Fall Product and Cookie Activity;
  • may attend day camp, resident camp, and council-sponsored programs;
  • may earn badges and awards. A different badge is highlighted in each newsletter.
  • the Juliette program is the perfect alternative for many girls, allowing them to shape the Girl Scout program into exactly what they want it to be

Why Do Girls Become Girl Scout Juliettes?

Girls may participate in Girl Scouts as a Juliette if they live in a town or neighborhood where there are no troops. Or, there is no additional room left in a troop, so a girl may become a Juliette until they can be placed in a troop. It's also possible that a girl may have been in a troop member at one time, but her troop no longer meets. Or, maybe a girl has other activities that make it difficult for her to attend troop meetings.

Regardless of why a girl chooses to become a Girl Scout Juliette, there are still many fun things to do!

Juliettes can participate in any of the five Pathways. They can earn badges and highest awards (Bronze, Silver and Gold), sell cookies and Full Circle Fundraising products to help pay for destination travel, Take Action projects, and more!

2014 Cookie Program for Juliettes

The Girl Scout Cookie Program has grown into a leading business and economic literacy program that is run by and for girls. The program provides an important ingredient for leadership by helping girls develop five key skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, and Business Ethics.

Last year was the first year Girl Scouts of Central Illinois used the direct sale format, and our Girl Scouts and troops were very successful. By using the direct sale format, troop profits increased by 25%, 35% more girls earned free membership, girls earned 26% more Cookie Dough and recognitions, and girls reaching the 250 and 500 boxes sold level was up over 110%.

Of course, we also experienced some growing pains while getting used to the direct sale process. To make the process smoother for our volunteers, members, parents, and staff, the product sales team met with cookie focus groups and have also reviewed the troop leader and parent surveys in order to improve our 2014 Cookie Program. You will notice several improvements this year, and we are thankful for all our volunteers who provided us with honest and helpful suggestions to help make this year’s program better than ever.

Please take time to thoroughly review the 2014 Juliette Cookie Guide. This guide will inform you of the many new improvements to our program and will answer most of your questions. Also, please don't forget to have your parent/guardian complete the Parent Permission Form for you participation.
