About Brownies

                   Girl Scouts Brownies are USA Grades 2 – 3

Troop/Group Leaders

Every Girl Scout Brownie belongs to a troop or group guided by leaders who are taught by certified trainers. Leaders partner with girls, giving them opportunities to make decisions about their activities and to learn leadership skills within the group.

Uniforms and Books

Girls can wear the Girl Scout Brownie Pin, showing they belong to Girl Scouts of the USA, and the World Trefoil Pin, signifying their membership in a worldwide movement. Girl Scout Brownies can purchase uniforms with either a sash or vest to display Girl Scout Brownie badges and other insignia. Girls can also buy a Girl Scout Brownie Handbook and Journey books for Girl Scout Brownies. Leaders use the Guide for Girl Scout Brownie Leaders and Safety-Wise.
