We trust Girl Scout volunteers. You bravely dive into challenges, blaze trails with your girls, and tackle tough issues. It's why we want your take on how we can make Girl Scouts better in your community. Each community is different; each girl is different! We want to make sure every Girl Scout supporter—including all volunteers, parents, and girl members—gets a say in how Girl Scouts should be active in their neighborhood.


We'd like to see you at an upcoming Town Hall Meeting! Meet Fiona Cummings, our CEO, ask questions, and get on-the-spot answers. Plus, you'll be one of the first to learn about exciting new Girl Scout program developments in your area. Reservations are not required, and all Girl Scout supporters are welcome! Here are the dates:

Hello Miss Student Council President, Miss School Paper Editor, Miss Band Leader, and Miss Team Captain,


Did you know that you know that you can be recognized in Girl Scouts for the leadership roles you have outside of our organization? You sure can! Take a look at the Silver Torch Award (for Cadettes), the Silver and Gold Torch award (for Seniors), and the Gold Torch Award (for Ambassadors). It’s true! To earn the award at your level, first complete one of your Journeys. Then, serve one full term in a leadership role.

It’s that time of year again, when our fantastic Girl Scouts are setting their goals for the year. What will we do? Where will we go? Which badges? Which Journey?


Which Journey indeed! Each of the 6 levels have the opportunity to pursue 3 different Journeys, and if a Girl Scout completes all three Journeys at her level, she earns the Journey Summit Award. Six Summits - Eighteen Journeys - Unlimited Potential.
