Taryn-Marie: Helping Foster Kids Make It to College
Taryn-Marie tells us about her drive to increase opportunities for teens aging out of the foster care system.
Every Girl Scout goes above and beyond to make a difference in her
community and the greater world. And the skills and experiences she
gains along the way set her up for special recognition through the
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards.
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the mark of the truly remarkable—and it’s only available through Girl Scouts! To earn this unique award, Seniors and Ambassadors don’t just change the world for the better, they change it for good by tackling issues dear to their hearts while driving lasting change in their communities and beyond.
Cadettes flex their leadership muscles by doing research and taking action on issues of their choice. Through their commitment to their communities, girls gain confidence and skills that will catapult them to Gold Award success—all while creating positive change.
By taking action with others to improve their communities, Juniors gain important leadership skills and learn that even seemingly small actions can make a big impact.
