Uniforms aren’t just for girls! Girl Scout volunteers and adult members can proudly wear adult uniforms to troop, service unit, and council events to set an example for the other Girl Scouts in their lives. This article is for all volunteers and details key pins, insignias, and their placement on the adult uniform.
Adult members’ uniform is navy blue business attire with the official pins and awards pins either pinned to their attire or a navy adult vest. Women complete their uniform by wearing an official Girl Scout scarf, and men wear a Girl Scout tie.
