 Global Action Team

Get informed, get inspired, and get ready to take action! As part of the Global Action Team, Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors can become advocates for important issues that impact girls across the world. The program focuses on three main themes:

Taking Action: In this program, girls create a Global Take Action Project that has an impact in the community and inspires others to act—creating change for the better.

Arrow.jpg Global Awareness: Girl Scouts develop cultural awareness through the project by collaborating with a World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) member organization in another country. All team members earn the WAGGGS Global Action Theme Badge and the Service to Girl Scouting Bar.

Arrow.jpg Leadership: The team leads the annual Global Action Summit—a weekend retreat for Cadette Girl Scouts. During this exciting event, team members teach younger girls about action through advocacy, making global connections, and how to follow through on large projects that impact in their community.
