Troop Activity Resources
GSUSA partnerships also provide Troop Activity resources which offer girls additional tools to discover new things and develop their leadership skills as they take their Girl Scout journey.
I CAN BE...ACTIVITY PACKETS
Barbie® and Girl Scouts of the USA announced a unique partnership to create the Barbie® “Be Anything, Do Everything” patch. The participation patch is designed to inspire the next generation of female leaders, encouraging girls to explore endless career possibilities through exciting new program activities.
Activity Packets (including booklets and patches) are available for purchase in limited quantities and while supplies last through the council Retail Shops. Packets are available in English and in Spanish.
Girl Scouts is proud to partner with Lean In to bring you Ban Bossy, a public service campaign dedicated to empowering girls to lead at home, at school, and at work. We want to ban the word "bossy" as one way to show girls they can be whatever they dream of being, from the CEO of world's largest company to the CEO of her family at home.
Ban Bossy includes a newly-launched website, Ban Bossy, where visitors can take the pledge to Ban Bossy; share facts and figures on girls' leadership; read Ban Bossy quotes from celebrities and leaders; and download GS troop leadership tips encouraging girls and women to lead at home, at school, and at work.
The Ban Bossy programming is tied to Girl Scouts' "BFF: Be a Friend First" campaign. Through these exercises, girls, 8 years and older, will learn leadership skills that will help them throughout their lives. When the girls participate in the activity they can earn the "I'm a Leader" patch. Click below to see resources and merchandise available now to help bring this important, fun program to girls!
