Girl Scout Week 2019

Celebrate the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ in you this year during Girl Scout Week! To get the party started, consider using this guide throughout the week.

Sunday, March 10: Girl Scout Sunday
Earn your My Promise, My Faith Award. Work with your family and faith leaders to earn the pin to celebrate the connection between the Girl Scout Promise and Law and your faith.

Monday, March 11:  Wear your favorite Girl Scout swag
Show off your Girl Scout pride by wearing your favorite Girl Scout branded clothing and accessories! This is the perfect day to also tell all of your friends about the cool stuff Girl Scouts get to do!

Tuesday, March 12: Girl Scout Birthday
Create a themed birthday party with your troop or group and invite friends! Introduce them to the fun of Girl Scouts. This is a perfect time to hold a rededication ceremony.

Wednesday, March 13: Act of Kindness Day
Spend all day doing random acts of kindness for others to celebrate what Girl Scouts is all about! Smile at a stranger, help your parents bring in the groceries, leave a kind note for someone, buy a stranger’s coffee or meal, rake leaves for a neighbor or take their trashcan to the road for pickup. No matter how big or small the acts of kindness are, you know you’ll be spreading the best part of Girl Scouts—making the world a better place!

Thursday, March 14: Volunteer Day
Pick a charity or organization in your community that needs help and use today to donate your time. Help stock a food pantry, volunteer at a local animal shelter, or even volunteer to help someone close to you complete a difficult task. Every Girl Scout knows how important it is to give back to her community. This is the day to show others just how much girls can change the world!

Friday, March 15: Wear your Girl Scout uniform to school
Show off your enthusiasm to be a G.I.R.L. by displaying your achievements proudly at school! Share what you have learned as a Girl Scout with your peers and encourage them to join Girl Scouts.

Saturday, March 16: Girl Scout Sabbath
Find a problem no matter how big or small in your community. Think of a way you and others can solve it and let your voice be heard!
