The IGM Corner
Information for Individual Girl Members
What is an IGM?
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 Scout activities!
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 events, service unit events, community service projects, camp, travel, series, product sales, and more!

How do IGMs connect with their service units?
IGMs and parents or advisors can attend service unit events to connect with other Girl Scouts. Service units will also reach out to IGMs and their parents to invite them to local events and activities.
To find your service unit please contact Patty Williams at (316) 684-6531 or email@example.com with the following information: county, school, and home zip code. You can see a council map showing service unit boundaries here.
