Renew your Membership

Girl Scouts isn't a one-and-done activity. It's a way of life that brings out the best in your girl. While the skills she learns build on each other year after year, she'll also discover new ways to make your family and community stronger, kinder and better for everyone.

Plus? Its fun.

Renew her membership today to keep the adventure going.

Bigger and better things are around the corner—can you feel it? We can. And we know Girl Scouts are going to lead the way. As Girl Scouts, they’re able to find their voices and make changes that affect the issues most important to them. 

They’ve already shown tremendous strength and maturity during the past two years, and we can’t wait to see what they accomplish next. From service projects to selling cookies, exploring the outdoors to making new friends, the possibilities are endless.

The world needs more Girl Scouts because Girl Scouts change the world. It’s time to keep the fun going and renew their opportunities for success.

Questions and Answers

Trouble Logging In?

Q: Why isn’t my username working?
A: Your username is typically your email address. If you have more than one email address, try each. You can also use the “Forgot Your Password?” link to send a reset email to your email address. If you’re still having trouble, email Customer Care at customercare@girlscouts-swtx.org.

Q: Why aren’t I getting the password reset emails?
A: The password reset emails come from gsusacustomercare@girlscouts.org, so please make sure it’s added to your safe senders list. If you requested the reset email before marking our email address as safe, check your spam folder. If you’re still not receiving the email, email Customer Care at customercare@girlscouts-swtx.org to verify that your username/email address is correct.

Q: How do I reset my password when I no longer have access to the email address associated with my account?
A: Our Customer Care team can easily change your username/email address without requiring you to recreate your account. Please email us at customercare@girlscouts-swtx.org.

Q: Why can’t I see my family when I log in?
A: There are several reasons this could happen:

Another adult family member may be listed as the preferred contact on the account. That person must log in to renew. email Customer Care at customercare@girlscouts-swtx.org if you’d like to be listed as your household’s preferred contact.

Another reason could be that you may have a second or duplicate account with a different email address. Try a different username. If that works, be sure to email Customer Care at customercare@girlscouts-swtx.org and ask them to merge the two accounts into one.

Q: Why can’t I see my troop(s) when I log in?
A: Only co-leaders can access the troop tab. If you are a co-leader and still can’t see it, please read on, as there are several reasons this could happen:

Troops are listed on a separate tab from your family. If you have more than one troop, look for the pull-down menu to change between them.

Check your member profile to make sure you’re listed as a volunteer in the troop.

If your background check has expired, you may lose access until it is up to date.

Our Customer Care team can provide additional support. Please email us at customercare@girlscouts-swtx.org.
