How to earn the Girl Scout Gold Award
Participate in Gold Award Training (offered both in person and virtually each month).
Get paired with your Gold Award Mentor after training who will help you through the process of getting your project approved.
Find an issue in your community or the world that you care about.
Learn everything you can about that issue through research and trusted sources.
Form a team by identifying experts and people in your community who could help you.
Think about the root cause of an issue, then make a plan of how you could tackle it.
Lead your team and carry out your plan.
Reflect on the change you’ve created in your community and the world, share your story, and inspire others to make a difference, too.
Present your final project to the Gold Award Committee.
