Social Media Community Guidelines

The official GSUSA social media pages are for Girl Scout members, alum, volunteers, parents, and supporters of Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts of the USA welcomes interaction, discussion, commentary, questions, and even criticism, but we ask that you keep your comments and posts relevant and respectful. Girl Scouts of the USA may remove any post or ban anyone who violates these guidelines. In particular, personal attacks, inappropriate language, spamming, and excessive posting will not be tolerated. Girl Scouts of the USA reserves the right to remove posts advertising commercial products, as well as those that violate a social media platform’s terms of service, or are inaccurate or otherwise objectionable.

Posts about individuals, other companies, non-for-profits, and products are not equal to endorsements. Comments and views expressed during live streams are not equal to endorsements.

Girl Scouts is a non-partisan non-political organization.

Group Guidelines

  • Be Kind and Courteous. We're all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let's treat everyone with respect and live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.

  • Keep it Girl Scout focused. Conversations should be Girl Scout-centered. Debating, insulting, or similar conversations regarding other youth activities may be removed.

  • No Hate Speech or Bullying. Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn't allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender, or identity will not be tolerated.

  • No Promotions or Spam. Give more than you take to this group. Self-promotion, spam, and irrelevant links aren't allowed. These posts will be removed.
