            healthy relationships with her Girl Scout sisters.

                   SUPPORTIVE ADULTS
                Adult volunteers provide a consistent supportive presence in a girl’s life over
                time, making her feel valued and providing guidance and mentorship.

                  SPECIAL EXPERIENCES
                The special experiences she’ll have in Girl Scouts will expand her
                horizons, connect her to uniquely Girl Scout traditions, and help
                her discover who she is and who she wants to be.

             Sisterhood, supportive adults, and special experiences
            happen through the six Troop Fundamentals.
         Engaging your troop in these six areas will introduce them to a variety of activities, experiences,
       and opportunities that will build new skills, strengthen their relationships, and challenge them to
      grow. Use the new Girl Scout Playbook at to help you plan your year

The uniform is an essential element of the Girl
Scout experience, and a beautiful record of her
time in Girl Scouts.
From the Daisy smock to the Ambassador sash or vest, girls
get to wear their accomplishments with pride and let their
strengths shine.

GIRL SCOUT TRADITIONS ▶ Dating back to the founding of Girl
Scouts, the uniform helped girls build sisterhood and community.
We still have some of the same patches and awards as used at our
founding, like Troop Crests and Brownie Wings!
OUTDOOR ADVENTURE ▶ Girl Scouts are outdoorswomen, so
it makes sense that so many of our badges help you get outside! It’ll
be a cinch to earn badges like the Trail Adventure and Hiker badges,
advance to badges like Trailblazing or Night Owl, and achieve awards
like the Counselor-in-Training and Program Aide pins.
PRODUCT PROGRAM ▶ These awards focus on setting goals,
decision-making, money management, and people skills—everything
a young entrepreneur needs. These awards don’t just show off her
business acumen—they’re proof that she can help fund her own Girl
Scout experience. Brand new for 2020 is our Cookie Entrepreneur
Family pin!
COMMUNITY SERVICE ▶ Community service doesn’t just
transform her community—it transforms her Girl Scout spirit. These
awards commemorate the way she’s changed the world around her,
from local efforts to national action.
BADGES, JOURNEYS, AND AWARDS ▶ At the heart of your
troop experience, these awards show all the things you’ve learned
and accomplished in Girl Scouts. Badges for skill development and
exploring interests, Journeys for leadership growth and problem
solving, and finally our prestigious higher awards (Girl Scout Bronze,
Silver, and Gold awards) for big ideas and bigger effort.
SPECIAL EVENTS ▶ Special events might not have an official
badge, but they’re a vital part of what makes her Girl Scout experience
great! The back of her uniform is fully dedicated to keeping these
memories alive, and it’ll be covered in fun patches and participation
patches from her adventures before you know it.

We are so excited to celebrate our entrepreneurship programming as the key to powering all the amazing Girl
Scout opportunities in this Guide! From Art-chery to robotics teams to traveling to the Galapagos or Australia, girls
experience financial empowerment by engaging in the World’s Largest Girl-Led Entrepreneurial Program in the World.
While focusing on decision making, goal setting, financial literacy, business ethics and people skills, girls learn the
importance of how a logo makes customers feel, how cookies are developed from an idea on paper to arriving packaged
in NorCal, and how to make their business stand out from thousands of other online businesses. Over 5000 of our
incredible volunteers annually invest over $4 million dollars’ worth of volunteer hours to support our girls’ businesses.
