Guess what, Girl Scouts? It’s the first day of the new Girl Scout Program year! We can’t wait to see all of the incredible things you and your troop do this year as you unleash your inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader). And what better way to start than by working on one of our 32 new Girl Scout badges and Journeys?
This year, we are rolling out 30 new badges and 2 new Journeys to inspire girls to prepare for their futures and develop skills in STEM and the outdoors. Girl Scouts is always evaluating and enhancing programming for girls so that they can connect, grow, and become their best selves as Girl Scouts. Combined with existing programs, these new Journeys and badges help girls empower themselves to unleash their inner strengths and accomplish amazing things.
