Centennial Patch Program
100 Years of Leadership: Promise for the Future
In March 2013, as Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary year drew to a close,
so did the Centennial Patch Program,
Promise for the Future: 100 Years
. The programwas created so that troops could discover
their Girl Scout heritage in honor of the occasion and to begin to
celebrate the future of Girl Scouting.
Girls created videos and posters depicting Girl Scouts of the future
to share at Girl Scout events, held fashion shows using recyclable
materials and participated in the Leave a Legacy Brick-by-Brick: Invest
in Girls program. Through the brick campaign, a total of 228 bricks will
be installed at our three camps this fall.
Upon completion of the patch program, girls were asked to submit
evaluations in order to purchase the patch.
Girls who participated told us they:
Felt connected to the 100th anniversary celebrations
Felt proud to be a Girl Scout
Learned about at least one Girl Scout tradition
Connected with newmembers in their communities
Learned how to talk to people about their ideas
Thought they would still be a Girl Scout in five years
Said they would recommend the patch program to another Girl Scout
Thank you to everyone who assisted or participated inmaking the
Centennial Patch Programa great success.
