Individual Girl Member (IGM)

 

What is an IGM?

arrow4-right_green_32

An IGM is an Individual Girl Member in Girl Scouts – that’s any girl who signs up to be a Girl Scout without the commitment of joining a troop. There are many reasons to be an IGM, and there are TONS of ways for IGMs to participate in Girl Scouts!

The IGM program is designed to meet the busy lifestyle of today’s girls. Any girl in grades K-12 can choose to participate as an IGM. Girls might become IGMs because the troop program doesn’t fit in their schedule or interests, or girls may sign up as IGMs because there is not an available troop in their area (yet!)

IGMs have the same opportunities for activities that girls in troops have! IGMs can pick and choose how to participate in Girl Scouts, including Council and Service Unit events, Community Service Projects, Camps, Travel, Series, Journeys, Cookie Sale, earning the Highest Awards, and more! 

 

How do IGMs connect with their local community of Girl Scouts for activities?

IGMs and parents or advisors can attend volunteer-led events and meetings throughout the year. You can be assigned to a Girl Scout Service Unit in your community. To connect with your local community of Girl Scouts, please contact our Product Sales team at (316) 684-6531 with the following information: county, school, and zip code. We will connect you with your local Girl Scouts, so you don’t miss a thing! The Volunteer Connect newsletter can also keep you updated on upcoming council events, trainings, and more that may help you achieve your goals as an IGM. Parents and advisors of IGM Girl Scouts, in a way, are acting as volunteers. Click here to subscribe!
