Girl Scout Bronze Award Steps
Build your Girl Scout Junior team
Girls must work as a group on the Bronze Award. Your team can be your troop, more than one troop, or a group of friends.
Explore your community
Your community can be your town, school, church, park, neighborhood, etc. Think about the people, places, and things in your community that may have needs. What are the root causes or core issues of those needs? Who in your community would be able to help you address those needs?
Choose your Bronze Award project
Think about the ways you can address those root causes to help your communities needs. This will be your project. Think about the following: Who will I be helping? How realistic are our goals? How will we be able to see the changes we want to make? Why is this project important to us? Find something your group is passionate about!
Make a plan
How will you go about your project? Who do you need to talk to? What volunteers will you need? What supplies will you need? How much money will you need and where will you get it? How much time will your project take?
Put your plan in motion
Start Working on your project. Put your plan into action! Have fun working with your community and making a difference!
Spread the word
Turn in your final reports by September 30 of your 6th grade year that you bridge to Cadettes to receive your certificate and be officially recognized by council as earning your Bronze Award. Remember to include photos, copies of news articles, flyers, or any other documentation of your work. Celebrate your accomplishment! Have a special celebration with your troop or community.
