Join Us

Visiting a GFS meeting, service activity, or retreat day is a great way to find out how membership in GFS can impact your life. Come with a friend or family member. Find a branch in your area or send an inquiry to  GFSUSAPresident@gmail.com.

Membership is open to all girls and young women of any race, religion or ethnic group from age 5 through 30. As the organization is affiliated with the Episcopal Church, members, parents and guardians should be aware that activities do include Christian worship and service within the Episcopal Church. Nevertheless, a girl does not have to be a church member to join.
