Girl Scout Week: Be a G.I.R.L. every day

 

 

 

 

From Girl Scouts of the USA

Although we celebrate important moments all year long, Girl Scout Week is a particularly special time! That’s because Girl Scouts across the United States (and even abroad) have the chance to connect with one another, show the world everything they do, and celebrate what it means to have that one-of-a-kind G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ grit.


This year, we’re challenging Girl Scouts everywhere to commit to seven goals and accompanying activities—whether girls have time for them this week or want to take them on in the months to come. After all, being a Girl Scout isn’t just for special occasions!



Sunday, March 11: celebrate inclusivity! Girl Scout Week starts with Girl Scout Sunday. Whether you’re Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, or not religious, take some time today to connect with your beliefs and values and learn about someone else’s. And take a moment to perform an act of kindness—that’s something everyone believes in!




 
 

Monday, March 12: be a go-getter! Kick off the school week by taking action and getting involved civically. Check out these resources and tips from the G.I.R.L. Agenda to feel inspired and prepared to make the world a better place—the possibilities are endless. You may even become motivated to work toward earning the Global Action award while you’re at it.



 
 

Tuesday, March 13: be an innovator! Explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  The different badges you can earn while at it will give you so many reasons to be proud, and the possibilities of STEM are endless—try your hand at robotics, botany, coding, or kitchen chemistry! If you’ve already got stellar STEM skills, reach out to a younger troop to see if you can share what you know.

Wednesday, March 14: be a risk-taker! Think about what makes you uncomfortable and how you can tackle your fears, then take risks by trying something new. Taking part in outdoor adventures with friends or family is the ultimate Girl Scout way. You could even find a way to volunteer with a group at school. Think about what you could accomplish if you joined an after-school environmental club, or better yet, start one. Your Ranger patch awaits!




Thursday, March 15: take the lead! Raise your hand. Stand up against bullying. Seize opportunities to help those in need.  When you’re a leader, you’re confident, responsible, and committed to changing the world.

Friday, March 16: revel in some Friday FUN! Work with your Girl Scout sisters to come up with a new way to celebrate being a Girl Scout. There are so many great Girl Scout traditions and ceremonies you can partake in—you can always come up with fun and meaningful activities on your own.

Saturday, March 17: observe Girl Scout Sabbath!This is the perfect day to reread and contemplate the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Find out more about the My Promise, My Faith pin and start taking steps to earn it, no matter what your beliefs. 



Show us how you’re celebrating all week long by sharing your activities on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #GirlScoutWeek.

Let’s make this year’s activities extra special. Here are a few ideas to get you started—one for each day of Girl Scout Week.

Sunday, March 12—Celebrate National Girl Scout Day by reconnecting with the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Learn more about Girl Scout history and our founder, Juliette Gordon Low; you could even hold a Girl Scout birthday party. (We’re 105 this year!) Do something to make the world a better place.

Monday, March 13—Be a go-getter and take action! You might launch a community service project or work toward a Girl Scout award.

Tuesday, March 14—Be an innovator and explore science, technology, engineering, and/or math (STEM)! You could create a fun project through Made with Code, meeting challenges head on and exploring new solutions.

Wednesday, March 15—Be a smart risk-taker and step out of your comfort zone! Get outside to explore and take action to protect our environment. Try a new outdoor activity with family or friends. Sign up for Girl Scout summer camp—or plan a different adventure. It could take place close to home, or around the world!

Thursday, March 16—Be a leader and show people you care! Commit “random acts of kindness” all day long. Be a good friend. Volunteer or donate to charity. Show the world your smile!

Friday, March 17—Get involved civically! Connect with your local (or school) officials and leaders. Learn about Girl Scouts’ legislative agenda. Work toward earning your Global Action award.

Saturday, March 18—Observe Girl Scout Sabbath: the perfect time to honor one’s faith. Attend a religious service. Think about earning your My Promise, My Faith pin. Learn more about faiths different from your own.

But don’t stop there! Learn more about Girl Scout traditions and ceremonies. Or…take the lead like a Girl Scout and come up with some fun and meaningful activities of your own!

And don’t forget to show us how you’re celebrating all week long, by sharing your activities on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, using the hashtag #GirlScoutWeek.

Not currently involved with Girl Scouts? Join, volunteer, or donate!

Above all, take the opportunity during Girl Scout Week, and throughout the year, to share your awesome—and show the world how your courage, confidence, and character make the world a better place.
