Girl Scout Ambassadors
Girl Scout Level: Girl Scout Ambassador
Grade Level: Eleventh and Twelfth Grades
What Ambassadors Do:
Girl Scout Ambassadors are nearly adults, and they have complete responsibility for their program. They make all of their own and their group's decisions, create budgets and earn the money to finance activities, set goals for money-earning, allocate tasks and delegate as leaders. Under the guidance of a trained adult advisor, girls mix and match activities and resources to suit their needs while giving back to their communities. They connect with each other and build self-esteem and confidence in their skills as they work on a range of projects and gain life experiences.
Ambassadors work on projects which require learning about a topic and then taking steps to improve the world with the information they have gathered. Ambassador Girl Scouts may also earn the Leadership Award and the Girl Scout Gold Award (the highest achievement in Girl Scouting).
As an Ambassador, You Might…
Girl Scout Ambassadors can wear the Girl Scout Membership Pin, showing they belong to Girl Scouts of the USA, and the World Trefoil Pin, signifying membership in a worldwide Movement. Girls can also buy an Ambassador sash or Ambassador vest to display Interest Project Awards and other insignia. Click to view a chart which shows how to wear the Girl Scout Ambassador insignia.
How to Join:
Any girl from K-12, from any neighborhood and any background can become a Girl Scout at any time during the year. The traditional and most well known Girl Scouting experience is through Girl Scout Troops. A girl may also join Girl Scouts as a Non-Troop Affiliated (NTA) Girl Scout. To register your daughter as a Girl Scout, please find your school district or the school district your daughter attends and contact your local field director. If you do not live in Nassau County, please use Council Finder to find a Girl Scout Council in your area.
