Girl Scouts earn their Global Action Award

Global Action Award

You probably already know that there are Girl Scouts all over the United States.

But did you know that your sisterhood stretches around the world, too? Girl Scouts of the USA is part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS for short), which includes 10 million girls in 146 countries. And all of those girls in all of those countries are working to make the world a better place— just like you are!

Each year, Girl Scouts of all levels can earn the Girl Scout Global Action award. This award connects the WAGGGS sisterhood by helping girls work together to make a difference on topics that affect girls and women all over the world. It’s an official national award, so you can wear it on the front of your vest or sash, just like a badge. 

This year’s Girl Scout Global Action award focuses on something called the Global Goals.

In 2015, leaders from all over the world agreed to work together to accomplish 17 goals by 2030. The Global Goals focus on things like taking care of the environment, making sure all people have enough to eat, and improving people’s health. They’re big goals, but Girl Scouts know a thing or two about changing the world!
