Just for Teens

At Girl Scouts, girls are always counting down to the next adventure they'll go on together. Maybe it's artistic. Maybe it's an experiment. Maybe it's getting outside or helping the community. One thing's for sure. Every adventure is another chance to take the lead and make an impact. 

The activities and opportunities below are facilitated by our GSKSMO staff and designed just for Teen Girl Scouts to build upon their Girl Scout Leadership Experience. This list is ever-evolving, so check back often!

A.C.E.S. (Advocacy, Civic Engagement, Service)

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.
