Most Common Advice From Bronze, Silver and Gold Award Winners

serviceawardsThe summer is the perfect time to start planning your next great service project – Make preparations now so you can take action in the fall and winter!

Based on conversations with girls who have completed Girl Scout Bronze, Silver and Gold Award projects, here are the most common pieces of advice:

COME UP WITH A PLAN
Your project will require a lot of coordination between people—this can be tricky. The more planning you do ahead of time, the better.

BE PREPARED TO IMPROVISE
Things happen—from bad weather to the chicken pox. When project hiccups happen stay calm, get creative and improvise.

USE YOUR NETWORK
You might not know how to do something, but you might know someone who knows someone who does. It never hurts to ask!

MAKE IT PERSONAL
What inspires you? What do you enjoy doing? The most successful projects tend to come from issues the person cares deeply about.

GET ADVICE FROM OTHERS
You are not in this alone! Talk to a variety of people about your idea. Consult experts and have them weigh in. This will help you plan
