Girl Scouts Gold Award ceremony

Would you like to help a girl change the world?

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest and most prestigious award a Girl Scout can earn. Girls undertake large-scale projects on issues they care about and that effect their local, national or international community. The projects typically happen over the course of a year and involve identifying an issue, investigating its impact, getting help, planning, presenting, taking action and educating.

Our Gold Award Committee members ensure that girls have the tools and support they need to complete these steps and earn this distinct honor. Committee members can help with interviews, serve as mentors, help plan the annual Gold Award ceremony, attend annual committee meetings, and more. This is an ideal position for individuals interested in mentoring, interviewing and advising high school age girls.

Mission Statement

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

Description

Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts of the USA is the preeminent organization for girls with a current membership of 3.6 million girls and adults. Volunteers use their expertise, skills, interests, and life experience to shape fun and enriching leadership experiences for girls, and inspire them to reach their personal best. Volunteers help council staff facilitate the New Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls through exciting program opportunities: leadership/self-esteem, financial literacy, travel, health/wellness, science, technology, engineering, and math. Volunteers choose from several flexible Pathways (the ways that girls and adults join Girl Scouting) that fit their lifestyles, including short-term or long-term service working either directly or indirectly with girls, and they can participate regionally, nationally, and internationally.
