Add-A-Member is back! Girls can get a patch by sharing the love of Girl Scouting with their friends. Every Girl should have the opportunity to experience the benefits of Girl Scouting! You can help make this happen! Every Girl Scout who invites a new girl to join Girl Scouts is eligible to receive the “Add-A-Member” patch. The new Girl Scout will also receive the patch!

To earn the patch, referrals must meet these requirements:

  • The member being referred has never been a Girl Scout or has not been a Girl Scout for at least one membership year
  • Both girls must be registered with GSEWNI for MY2020 and participate with a Troop or as a Juliette
  • Only one referring girl for each new member
  • Renewing members who refer new members MUST have registered for MY2020 prior to 09/30/2019
