Juliettes are independent Girl Scouts.
Today's girls are very busy! Many are involved in many extracurricular activities. They are taking dance and music lessons, learning gymnastics, participating in cheerleading, on all sorts of sports teams, active in DI, 4H, Future Farmers of America, school government, and take Karate lessons. They also have religious education at their church, temple, or mosque.
Although Girl Scouts often meet less often than other activities, some girls simply do not have the time to fit anything else into their busy schedules - or at least not on a regular basis.
That's why Girl Scouts have six pathways a girl can be a Girl Scout. Through pathways, girls can still benefit from the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, but will have the flexibility to participate as much or as little as her schedule allows. Girls that are not active in a regularly-meeting troop are called Juliettes. They can earn badges and journeys. Juliettes in Wrentham/Plainville are called Troop 5002.
