The Badge Explorer is a great way to find badges you can work on with your troop. Simply put in your troop's level and/or what pillar you would like to work on! Based on your selections, images and descriptions of all the badges will appear. Results can even be saved as a PDF!
With a girl-led experience, there is an endless amount of choices and sometimes that may end in resolving conflicts. Differences in opinion—whether it be between volunteers, parent/troop leader, or girl/girl. When a conflict does come up, effectively navigating through it allows better communication, new ideas, and results that will allow you to have a successful leadership experience. Use our Conflict Resolution Packet to help you navigate conflict in your troop!
