Virtual Badge Breaks

Join us every Tuesday and Thursday we will be live on Facebook, helping girls of all levels partake in fun and help earn parts of Girl Scout Badges. Although only a step or two from various badges will be covered in the video, we have provided additional resources for girls to complete the rest of the badge requirements across many levels.

Be sure to share photos of girls completing the badge work via the photo submission page on our website or by posting on your social media sites with the hashtag #GSJSChallenge. Sharing inspiration is a great way to stay connected.

Check back often as we create more!
