GS Grade Level: Seniors, Ambassadors
The ACES Pin is the culmination of a yearlong commitment to advocacy, civic engagement, and service. When Girl Scouts register, they are signing-up for 7 months of dynamic programming designed to be collaborative and girl led. In ACES, girls will learn by doing; from letter writing campaigns to meetings with elected officials and more. In addition to earning their ACES Pin, Girl Scouts will also earn the Citizenship Badge, Civics Badge, and the Torch Pin at their program level.
