Superhero Sunday

On superhero Sunday be a superhero in someones life. There are many ways big and small you can make a difference.

Mission Monday

The definition of mission is a specific task with which a person or a group is charged with. Today think about a goal big or small that you want to achieve. 

  • Earn a highest award. Show everyone how you’ll do it by earning the Girl Scout GoldSilver, and Bronze Awards. Each award will challenge you and helps you take action in a big way.
  • Set your cookie goals. From 30 Boxes to 300 Boxes, setting weekly challenges can help motivate and encourage a successful sale.

Girl Scout Birthday

Girl Scouting was founded on March 12, 1912, by Juliette Gordon Low in Savannah, GA. Juliette gathered 18 girls from her cousin’s school and broke the conventions of the time—reaching across class, cultural, and ethnic boundaries to ensure all girls, including those with so-called disabilities, had a place to grow and develop their leadership skills.

  • Join us for a Girl Scout Birthday Party! Let's celebrate the best girl led organization in the world turning 112 years old and still going strong. Learn about Girl Scout history, take part in traditional ceremonies, explore our council museum corner at the Program Activity Center with a scavenger hunt and decorate your own Girl Scout themed cupcake. Come show your Girl Scout pride!

Take Action Tuesday

Take Action encourages girls to develop a project that is sustainable. That means that the problem continues to be addressed, even after the project is over. Sustainability simply means coming up with a solution that lasts.

  • Here are three ways to create sustainable change: 1. Make your solution permanent. 2. Educate and inspire others to be part of the change. 3. Change a rule, regulation or law
  • Become a Climate Advocate! As climate change affects our planet, it’s up to us to do what we can to protect our Earth. When you participate in the Girl Scout Climate Challenge, you’ll get outdoors to learn about climate science, connect with your community to understand how it is impacted by climate change and spread awareness of the issue to make a difference.

Girl Scout Sabbath

Girl Scout Sabbath celebrates the powerful ties between Girl Scouting and faith. Girl Scouts are encouraged to connect their faith to the Girl Scout Law and earn the religious recognitions of their faith. Let’s honor the Girl Scouts and adult volunteers who give their time and talents in service of others!
