We’re proud that Girl Scouts has a 107 year-long history of being an inclusive space where all girls can feel comfortable expressing themselves and if they choose, their faith. Making the world a better place is just what Girl Scouts do, and that value is at the heart of many faiths around the globe.
This Girl Scout Sunday (March 10) and Girl Scout Sabbath(March 16) we encourage girls to strengthen the connection between their faith and Girl Scouting in thoughtful, meaningful ways. No matter your faith, it’s a time for girls to grow their leadership skills and spiritual beliefs.
Both of these days provide girls an opportunity to attend their place of worship and be recognized as Girl Scouts. Other activities to consider:
- Wear your Girl Scout Uniform and take part in a service at your place of worship
- Earn the My Promise, My Faith Award
- Think about your beliefs and how they’re reflected in the Girl Scout Law. Think of the things the two have in common and share your thoughts with others.
- Learn about a faith tradition different than your own
- Volunteer to assist with teaching or watching the younger children in your place of worship
- Volunteer to lead a prayer, reading, or song at your place of worship
- Find a quiet, peaceful place to think about all of the things for which you are grateful
- Connect with your beliefs and values and take a moment to perform an act of kindness
However you choose to celebrate, we hope you’ll share it with us!
