Renew

Keep her engaged and inspired in challenging times

At a time when so many things your girl was looking forward to with friends, family and school are cancelled, the Girl Scout experience she enjoys and depends on is still happening - and we are looking forward to continuing our program in new and innovative ways in the fall.

During the month of June, GSWNY will be holding a “June Renewal” campaign for girls and volunteers to renew now for the 2021 Membership Year, which begins October 1.

As always, financial assistance is available for girls and volunteers.

If you’re not in a position to renew right now, don’t worry – our signature Renewal perk, SAGE Tuition Rewards points, will be earned by girls, co-leaders and service unit managers who renew by September 30.  And we’ll have lots more incentives in August and September, so whether you renew today or later, you can still qualify.


In challenging times, our Girl Scout grit shines the brightest. That’s why we’re prepared to be a source of consistency for you and your girl when you need it most. Now you can access the Girl Scout experience she knows and loves in a way she can enjoy right now.

While many of the things she was looking forward to are canceled, Girl Scouts is still happening. From home and online, for as long as she needs to, she can:

  • Keep the Girl Scout experience going and stay connected while earning badges through online activities with the NEW Girl Scouts at Home
  • Participate in live virtual events and safe service projects that keep her engaged and inspired
  • Gain tangible, innovative problem-solving and life skills
  • Grow confidence in her outdoor skills and learn how to be a champion for the environment 
  • Expand her imagination through hands-on STEM activities 

And as things continue to evolve and change, we’ll continue to adapt to meet her needs until we can come together again. 

Connection is more important than ever as we navigate these challenging times. So whenever you’re ready to renew your Girl Scout membership, we’ll be here for you.

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, contact your council’s Customer Care team.

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, contact your council’s Customer Care team 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: Your council’s Customer Care team can easily change your username/email address without requiring you to recreate your account.

Q: Why can’t I see my family when I log in?
A: There are a couple 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. Contact your council’s Customer Care team if you’d like to be listed as your household’s preferred contact.
  • You may have a second or duplicate account with a different email address. Try a different username. If that works, be sure to contact your council’s Customer Care team to merge the two accounts into one.

Q: Why can’t I see my troop(s) when I log in?
A: 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.
  • Not all troop volunteers can access the troop tab. Check with your council to see which volunteer roles they allow to access the tab.
  • If your background check has expired, you may lose access until it is up-to-date.

Your council’s Customer Care team can provide additional support.

Bridging awards mark a girl’s transition from one leadership level to the next. An exciting time in a Girl Scout’s life, the earning of the award and completion of the activities are designed to emphasize the continuity of one Girl Scout program and to welcome girls to an anticipated “next level.“
