Ambassadors (Grades 11-12)
Hello Troop Leaders and Girls!
These videos and activities are designed to give you ideas for adapting badge steps in a virtual environment. Watch the videos, read the instructions, and add any necessary adaptations to meet your troop’s needs. We don’t recommend playing the videos at troop meetings—but they’re great if a girl is doing a badge step on her own or had to miss a session!
