The Friendship Circle
The friendship circle is often formed at the end of meetings or campfires as a sort of closing ceremony. Everyone gathers in a circle where they cross their right arm over their left in front of them and hold hands with the people on either side. Once everyone is silent, the leader starts the friendship squeeze which is passed from hand to hand.
The friendship squeeze is started by an agreed upon leader. She squeezes the hand on the girl next to her (either to the left or the right, but only one way) and moves her right foot forward (i.e. towards the center of the circle). The girl who receives the squeeze moves her right foot forward and passes the squeeze on to the next girl. When the squeeze comes back to the first person everyone raises their arms - while still holding hands and turns under their right arm. If this is done correctly, everyone is now facing outward. They release hands and walk away, signaling that the ceremony or meeting is over.
Being a Juliette is a fun and flexible way to participate in Girl Scouting.
Juliettes are registered Girl Scouts who are not affiliated with a troop.
Juliette Girl Scouts do everything girls in troops do, but at their own pace.
It's exciting when you bridge to Juniors. You shed your old brown brownie vest encrusted with Try-Its and patches and slip on a mint-green Junior vest.
Your Junior vest isn't that different from the old vest you just handed to your leader. It still has your Girl Scout Council and Girl Scouts of USA patches on it. There's still the tab with the International Girl Scout and Trefoil pins on it. If you flew up from Daisies to Brownies, you'll recognize the pair of wings on your vest from flying up from Brownies to Juniors. If you completed a Junior badge at the end of Brownies, you will have an arched rainbow for bridging and a badge.
You will notice that the Junior badge is different than a Try-It. For one, it's a small, round circle, not a triangle. Next, you'll notice you had to complete six activities to earn the badge, not the four activities for the Try-Its. Lastly you'll notice you had DO it, not TRY it.
In Juniors, you still do everything you did when you were a Brownie, but you take more responsibilities and you vote on a lot of things.
I hope this answered most of your questions about Juniors and that you continue Girl Scouting in the future. It's a fun way to help other people and learn new things yourself.
