Girl Scouts at Home

The Girl Scout mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Our mission does not specify a place and that’s because our girls can exhibit courage, confidence, and character wherever they are—including from home.

In this unique time, we are offering our community Girl Scout activities from home! Whether it be badge work, simple activities, or even a song—we are committed to supporting our girls and their families. We will continue to update and add new activities each week! If you have already earned the badges listed  visit GSUSA’s Badge Explorer.

Make the World a Better Place

Valentine’s Day Cards National Service Project

Cupid Crew Valentine’s Day Cards

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity for you and your troop to reach out and show others that you care—especially those who may be alone on a day that’s all about connection!

This year, Girl Scouts is teaming up with Wish of a Lifetime from AARP for Cupid Crew 2021, a volunteer-driven effort to create cards and safely send some love to tens of thousands of older adults who are socially isolated.

Fighting Hunger National Service Project

More than 50 million adults, kids, and families in the U.S. are experiencing food insecurity, a number that has only increased since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and may include members of our own communities, friends and family, or members of our troops, making this a sensitive and important take action issue for Girl Scouts.

As they think about how to give back this holiday season, girls can make a big difference in their communities—and for children around the world—by supporting hunger relief efforts. There are lots of ways for your troop to make an impact, whether you’re meeting safely in-person or virtually, and even if you aren’t able to give food directly.

Citizen Science National Service Project

This summer, your troop can contribute to important scientific research by participating in GSUSA's Girl Scouts Give Back citizen science projects. GSUSA partnered with SciStarter, an online citizen science community, to help get you going!

Letter Writing National Service Project

The idea is simple: girls write letters to people in nursing homes, senior residences, and assisted living facilities, including the dedicated staff and caregivers. This long-distance hug is a way to share your good thoughts with these vulnerable and loved community members.

Mask Making National Service Project

Now, with this nationwide mask-making campaign, all girls have the chance to step up to help their friends, neighbors, and frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. And we’ve partnered with Feeding America, a network of local food banks across the U.S., to make it easy for your girls to amplify their efforts.
