More Journeys and badges for STEM, Outdoors, and Civic Engagement are here!
We’re always evaluating—and enhancing—what girls do, how girls connect, and how girls grow as Girl Scouts. We listen to what girls, parents, and volunteers tell us about what they like most, and we take action to keep our program relevant and engaging. This year, we added new Journeys and badges in STEM and the outdoors!
Combined with existing STEM and outdoor programs, as well as programming that addresses life skills and entrepreneurship, these new Journeys and badges help girls empower themselves to take the lead like a Girl Scout as they accomplish amazing things.
Our littlest Girl Scouts, Daisies, can now earn the new Good Neighbor badge as they find out more about their communities. And Girl Scouts at every level can make the world a better place by getting involved in their community, school, or local government as part of the It's Your World—Change It! Journey. Or, by advocating for positive change using resources available from the G.I.R.L. Agenda.
New Daisy Badges | Two new Daisy badges, Outdoor Art Maker and Good Neighbor, give Daisies a chance to get in on the creativity other Girl Scouts already enjoy and discover all about their school, city or town, and state! LEARN MORE
