I AM SAM star Dakota Fanning is set to officially become a member of the Girl Scouts of the USA on Thursday (22SEP05).

Once the 11-year-old is inducted into the Girl Scouts of California's San Fernando Valley council, she'll mark the occasion by hosting a special screening of her latest movie DREAMER: INSPIRED BY A TRUE STORY.

Fanning, 11, and more than 500 Girl Scouts will be treated to the exclusive screening in Burbank, California.

While Fanning's younger sister ELLE, seven, cannot be present for the ceremony and screening, she will be made a Brownie.
