Who advises the girl?
The parent/guardian or volunteer designated by the local volunteer team (Service Unit Team) can advise a Juliette. All adult advisors that plan to work on the Girl Scout program with the girl, must be registered adult members of the Girl Scouts.
What does the advisor do?
Each advisor/parent not only provides guidance for most of the girl’s Girl Scout experience, she communicates information from both Girl Scouts of Connecticut and local Girl Scouts regarding program, training, and recognition opportunities. A Juliette advisor/parent is the link between Girl Scouting and the individual girl member.
Does an advisor need Volunteer Application and references?
If the unrelated advisor has direct contact with the girl and is working on Girl Scout Program then she/he must be registered, complete a volunteer application packet, and complete appropriate training.
How will Service Units know they have Juliettes?
The local volunteer registrar (Service Unit Registrar) notifies local volunteer area manager (Service Unit Manager) or her/his designee upon receipt of a Juliette registration. All Juliette’s must register through their local Service Unit Registrar.
Can a Juliette go on trips? Is she covered under insurance? Does a
permission slip need to be filled out and submitted to the local
A Juliette can go on trips or participate in Girl Scout activities sponsored by troops, Service Units, and Council. As a registered Girl Scout, she is covered under Girl Scout Insurance. A Juliette must complete an Individual Girl Event Registration Form prior to attending any council-sponsored trip/activities.
Check out our Program Resource Guide to find council-sponsored events to attend.
Can Juliettes occasionally get together to go camping, horseback
riding etc. along with their advisors?
Yes, a Juliette can participate in events with other Juliettes and approved Girl Scout advisors. A troop trip application should be submitted to the local Service Unit Manager. If the girls decide they would like to continue to get together they should form a special interest group.
