The instructor-led class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises. Participants will learn Safety Skills, Childcare Skills, First Aid and Rescue Skills and Life and Business Skills.

Highest Awards

Highest Awards prove you've got what it takes to build a better today- and tomorrow. You shine brightest when you're making the world a better place. That's why you can earn three separate awards- the Girl Scout Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards- as you dream of a better tomorrow and take action in big ways today.

Find our Highest Award guides and resources at bit.ly/3WW6SjJ.

Highest Awards FAQ & Brainstorming Session

Trying to figure out if your idea fits into a Girl Scout Bronze, Silver or Gold Award project? Need some ideas? What if you hit a roadblock? What is sustainability or root cause? What's the difference between a service project and a Girl Scout Bronze, Silver or Gold Award project? These questions and other questions you may have will be answered during this lively forum. Join us for an open brainstorming and FAQ session about the Highest Awards. Girls in all stages of their Highest Awards are encouraged to bring their ideas and an open mind to this free session. Parents, guardians and troop leaders are encouraged to attend the NEW Highest Awards Adult Chats as well.

See our upcoming dates and register at bit.ly/3Vj55U2.

Take a deep dive into the Gold Award process at a required Girl Scout Gold Award Training. This is the perfect place to really dig into your Gold Award!

We’ll take a look at steps 1-7 of the Gold Award process utilizing GoGold Online. We’ll help you understand what makes a Take Action project different from community service project. We’ll also talk about sustainability and tracking measurability- both critically important to Girl Scout Gold Award projects. We’ll tackle both of these topics, as well as establishing a global impact and much more. This Gold Award training is the necessary first step for Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors preparing to go Gold and is required before your project can be approved.

CELEBRATE FAITH

Girl Scout Week is a time when we shout our Girl Scout pride from the rooftops! It’s also a time when many troops celebrate the connections between Girl Scouting and their faith, learn more about other faiths and thank faith partners for their support throughout the year. Whether they participate in a worship service, plan an activity before or after the service or organize a service project, your girls can honor those meaningful connections in lots of ways!

Check out the Girl Scouts Celebrate Faith Toolkit to help you plan, promote and carry out your event with your faith partner at bit.ly/3AZm7Pq.
