Gold Award Spotlight: Kid2Kid

Girl Scout Jenna has earned the Gold Award, the highest honor and achievement a girl can earn in Girl Scouts. 

For her Gold Award, “Kid2Kid,” Jenna wanted to build upon a program at St. Mary’s Home that was founded in 2009 by her family by making it an organization that would be sustainable.  In order to become an organization Jenna assisted Kid2Kid in producing bylaws, running elections for youth officer positions, creating organization goals and more. There is now an official Kid2Kid board that will help run the organization when Jenna graduates and starts working on her college education.

Because of her Gold Award project, Jenna was able to demonstrate and improve upon her leadership skills while developing a plan to create a successful organization.

“Legacy was important to me in doing this because I did not want Kid2Kid to disappear when I go off to college,” she said.
