YOU ARE MORE THAN A GIRL SCOUT.

You're a G. I. R. L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ powerhouse! We're so excited you are ready to join us for another year of Girl Scouting! 

We believe there's no such thing as too much. That there's no excuse for making excuses. Our strength doesn't come from how much we can lift but from how often we can lift ourselves back up. And this is the perfect place to do just that—a place where "Can I?" quickly turns into "I will!" and there's no challenge we can't overcome together. Because we are everyday optimists. Adventure-seekers. Self-starters. Problem-solvers. Change-makers. We are girls, troop leaders, mentors, advocates, parents, and Girl Scouts. We are G.I.R.L.s. And we can't stop, won’t stop.

Not yet a member? Join now!

 

Thank you to our amazing Service Units and Troops that renewed during our Early Bird Renewal to receive some awesome incentives!

Helpful Documents for Renewing

*Tip: Leaders, make sure you renew your membership before you begin renewing girls or your position.

Helpful Videos for Renewing

Check out the videos below for a step-by-step walk through of the renewal process for families, troop leaders, and lifetime members. Please disregard the date on the video. The functionality is still the same. Shout out to Girl Scouts of Eastern Ohio for putting together these great videos!

 

 

Spring Renewal FAQs

What is Spring Renewal?

Spring Renewal is your chance to be the first to renew for another exciting year of GIrl Scouts! Whether you're a go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, or leader, when you renew membership between May 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020, you get the chance to unleash your greatness for another year, AND get a special patch!

When is Spring Renewal?

GSEP's Spring Renewal begins May 1, 2020 and ends June 30, 2020.

Who can renew during Spring Renewal?

All currently registered members! During Spring Renewal, parents or guardians can renew themselves and their Girl Scouts, and troop leaders can renew themselves and their troop members.

Why should I renew now?

Secure your spot in your troop now! Bridging girls can also secure their spot in their new troop. Whether you're a troop leader, parent, or guardian, renewing shows that you believe in the power of the G.I.R.L. You understand the amazing opportunities that girls get as Girl Scouts, and you're committed to helping girls continue their journey to greatness!

Renewing now also means there's one less thing to worry about at the start of another busy school year. Girl Scouts are always prepared, so renew today!

Where do I renew?

Online! Renewing is SUPER easy. Simply log in to your My GS account to renew! Check out this helpful guide for instructions to log in.

How much are membership dues?

Membership dues are $25.

What Internet browser should I use?

Chrome is the preferred browser for viewing our website and logging into My GS. Download it here

Internet Browser and Pop-up Blockers
To view and print your Girl Scout membership receipt, you may need to temporarily disable pop-up blockers for the web browser you are using. It is best to do this before you start the renewal process.

My Girl Scout earned a membership voucher during the Cookie Program. How do I renew her?

Congrats, #cookieboss! The membership voucher offer will be emailed by May 2020.  All parents need to do is reply to the email that they want to redeem the free membership and we will renew it for you.  Until then, parents or leaders who think a girl earned the membership voucher should not renew the membership to prevent the time and cost of refunding it later.  If you do not receive the email by May 15th, please email memberservices@gsep.org and we will research it for you. 

 

MY GS/Registration Questions

I am a Lifetime member. Why does it say my membership is "in progress"?

If you are a Lifetime Member and you renew or change your volunteer position, your position will automatically switch to “in progress” while we verify your criminal background check documentation. (Unfortunately, the system does not allow us to skip this step – even for currently cleared volunteers.)

How do I renew my volunteer position?

If you are an adult member or lifetime volunteer who is renewing, we recommend that you renew any girls and adults in your troop first, then renew your own membership, then renew (or change/add) your volunteer position. Because all Girl Scout volunteers in Pennsylvania must have valid background checks, any changes to your volunteer position will make your position “in progress” while we manually check your background check status. (Unfortunately, the system does not allow us to skip this step – even for currently cleared volunteers.)

Why am I seeing inactive members in my troop? These girls/adults were not in my troop last year.

A member will remain affiliated with your troop for two years to allow an opportunity for lapsed members to return to your troop at any time.

The years of scouting listed in my record is incorrect. Can you fix it?

Years of Scouting is self-reported. When a girl membership or an adult membership is renewed, the number in the Girl Years field (or Adult Years field for adult members) is incremented by 1. At this time, the number of Adult Years field does not automatically advance for Lifetime Members.

Neither GSEP nor GSUSA keeps records of years of service, and this is not a field that we are able to verify. However, if your account lists the incorrect number of years and you’d like us to update it, email memberservices@gsep.org

 

When I create my password for My GS/Member Community, does it automatically update my password in the Program/Event Registration System (Ebiz)?

No, setting up your account and/or resetting your password for MYGS will not reset your password in the Program/Event Registration System. However, you can use the same username and password in both systems. 

Do I need an account in the Program/Event Registration System (Ebiz) to register for a program, camp, or training?

Yes. MYGS does not currently support event, program, or training registration. If you are a new member, or if you do not have a current log-in for the Program/Event Registration System (Ebiz), you will need to create an account in order to register for events, programs (including camp), or trainings.

Before logging into Program/Event Registration, you must create an account in MYGS and then wait 24 hours (it takes 24 hours for the systems to transfer your information). You may then create a login and complete your program registration.  

If you receive an error or have any trouble, please contact us at memberservices@gsep.org

How do I request a troop transfer?

To request a troop transfer, email memberservices@gsep.org with the full names of girls/adults to be transferred and their new troop numbers. Service Unit Managers, Troop Leaders, and parent/guardians may initiate a transfer.

Can I add new girls to my troop now?

Yes! If the girls are already registered, email memberservices@gsep.org and request a troop transfer.

If they girls are not already registered, the troop leader can add them during the renewal process. At the bottom of the renewal page, beneath “add a new member to your troop,” select girl or adult member and click go.

Why can't I update my girl's grade?

The grade for all current members will automatically “age up” one year on July 1.

I am a leader who needs to add a girl to my troop or edit a volunteer role. How do I do that?

As a troop leader, you can now make a number of updates to your troop's information in My GS:

  • Add a new girl or adult to your troop for the next membership year. Click the "Troops" tab and scroll down to Add a New Member to Troop to start their registration.
  • Add or change volunteer roles for an adult in your troop. Click on the "Troops" tab and to the right of the adult's name click on Add/Edit.
  • Open your troop to new girls or edit your troop meeting information. You can do both by clicking on the "Troops" tab. Scroll down and click on View/Edit Troop information
I am a parent and need to change my daughter’s troop or add a member to our household. How do I do that?

As a parent, you can make a number of changes to your Girl Scout or family's information:

  • Add a new troop for a girl: Under the "Membership" tab under Participation, Add/Change Troops.
  • Add a new volunteer role for yourself: Under the "Membership" tab under Participation, Add Role.
  • Add a new girl or adult to your household: Scroll down on the "Membership" tab to Add a New Member to the Household.
  • Update your contact information or child's school information: Click on the "Family Profile" tab to edit your household's information.
How do I apply for financial aid?

Membership financial aid is available on a first come, first served basis while funds are available.  To apply, begin the registration process to join or renew and click Request Financial Aid on the payment screen.  You will receive an email with additional instructions and links to complete the process. When funding runs out, this request option will no longer be available.

How do I renew my CBCs? I am a new volunteer, what is the CBC process?

For step-by-step instructions on what documents are required for your CBC clearances, and how to submit them, visit our Ways to Volunteer page.

Check out our CBC Processing Packet for helpful information on the CBC process.

Why am I not seeing camp sessions or events that I've registered for in my profile in My GS?

Before logging into Program/Event Registration, you must create an account in MYGS and then wait 1 to 2 days (information is transferred between systems nightly at 9 pm EST). You may then create an online account and complete your program, camp or training registration.
