Level:
Pre-K, Juniors, Brownies, Daisies
 

By learning how the government works, Girl Scouts are prepared to make the world a better place. Through this Civics Badge virtual workshop, girls gain an in-depth understanding of how local, state, and federal government works, equipping them to be voters, activists, and even political leaders. They also research their own government officials and are encouraged to meet them. 

 

Kendall, Gold Award Girl Scout and Lifetime Member, will lead our virtual Civics Badge workshop.

 

By attending the virtual workshop, girls will earn their civics badge:


Daisies
Good Neighbor: With this badge, Daisies will explore the communities they belong to—from their roles as Daisies in Girl Scouts to their place as residents of their town. They’ll also learn how people work together to be good neighbors to one another.

 

Brownies
Celebrating Community: Brownies who earn this badge will discover how communities celebrate their unique qualities and how supporting the people within communities can mean everything from looking for landmarks to marching in a parade. Girls will learn how their communities honor and observe their special traits as they celebrate their traditions. 


Juniors
Inside Government: Citizens are responsible for knowing the basics of government. To earn this badge, Juniors will go beyond the voting booth and inside government by examining laws, reporting on issues, and deciding what it means to be an active citizen. 

 

Cadettes
Finding Common Ground: Cadettes will explore the challenges of finding common ground with those who have different opinions. Elected leaders often need to make compromises, so girls will investigate how negotiations happen by learning about civil debate, accommodations, mediation, and group decision making. 

 

Seniors
Behind the Ballot: Making your voice heard through voting is both a right and a responsibility, whether you’re voting for class president or our nation’s leaders. Seniors will learn about elections, investigate the ins and outs of voting, and help get out the vote. 

 

Ambassadors
Public Policy: Ambassadors have already learned about the need to speak up about issues important to them, but by taking the next step and exploring public policy, they’ll dive deeper into the laws and government actions surrounding specific issues. Through advocacy, learning about public policy on a local or state level, and action, Ambassadors will learn firsthand how citizens can change the world. Learn more on
