Girl Scout Silver Award Activity



Take Action to Create Positive Change

Girl Scouts are the youth leaders their communities need to create solutions to the new and ever-changing obstacles that arise from this global pandemic.

Activity Details

Working as a team or individually, 6th-8th grade Girl Scouts earn the Silver Award—the highest award for Cadette Girl Scouts—by identifying the root of a community issue they care about and then rolling up their sleeves and getting to work!

Interested in becoming a Silver Award Girl Scout?  Visit our Silver Award Webpage to learn how. 

When you’re ready to get started be sure to notify your council so they can hook you up with everything you’ll need. Find your local Girl Scout council.

Note: Girls, volunteers and families are encouraged to take the time and space they need to adjust to this period of rapid change and uncertainty. When they’re ready, we’re here to support Cadette Girl Scouts to safely take action in their communities—whether it’s helping ensure kids are still getting the nourishment and enrichment they need out of school, responding to the possible ramifications of isolation during social distancing, adapting an existing project to positively impact local communities today or something else entirely! 

Troop Leaders:  The instructions for all badge steps are available free of charge in your  Girl Scout Volunteer Toolkit.

Girl Scouts at Home activities have been adapted from existing Girl Scout programming and optimized for use at home during a period of social distancing.
