Girl Scout JUNIORS
Girl Scouts in Grades 4-5
Who are Juniors?
Juniors take on most responsibilities for their troops, acting as leaders and managers, and can run their own meetings. They learn through the National Program Portfolio and Girl Scout Leadership Experience, gaining tremendous confidence through planning their troop's activities for the year. They work with younger girls and in the community.
Junior Leadership and Badges
Juniors earn badges that require some skill and proficiency. Juniors may also work on the Bronze Award, a leadership adventure tht is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As you and your team plan and complete your project, you'll develop more confidence, meet new people, and have the kind of fun that happens when you work with other Girl Scouts to make a difference.
As a Junior, you might ...
- Volunteer at an animal shelter, making a nicer temporary home for the animals
- Plan and host a dance in your community
- Connect with a Girl Scout who lives overseas
- Work together to organize a badge workshop for Brownies
- Manage your group's finances
- Earn the Bronze Award, the highest achievement for a Junior
- Sell cookies to pay for a trip or for a special event
- Attend day or overnight camp
Girl Scout Journeys are leadership programs that enable girls to plan and make decisions at every level.
