Join the Global Action Team!patchanddescrip.jpg

Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts are invited to participate in this premier leadership and global citizenship opportunity. Through this exciting opportunity, girls will be advocates for the importance of access to education for girls worldwide by developing a Global Take Action Project that makes an impact in the community and inspires others to act, creating change for the better. 
Girl Scouts will develop cultural awareness through the project by connecting and collaborating with a World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) member organization in another country.
All Global Green Team members who are selected to participate will earn the WAGGS Global Action Theme Badge and the Service to Girl Scouting Bar.
Program cost is all inclusive and covers meals and program supplies at all day and overnight events, technology, equipment, team T-Shirt, badges and awards, entrance fees, and Global Action Summit supplies. The Global Action Summit is the final presentation and fulfilment of each team’s Global Action Project. For more information about the Summit, please see below.
The program runs regularly November through July, with retreats at Camp River Ranch throughout, as well as the final Global Action Summit at Camp Robbinswold. Cost is $250 per girl, and financial assistance is available.

The Global Action Summit

The Global Action Summit is the culminating project for the Global Action Team, a dedicated group of Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts, and global citizenship stewards.
At the Summit, girls will learn how access to education impacts every girl, as well as the world around them. The Global Action Summit Sessions will include how discovering your global citizenship potential helps girls to do great things in the world, connect to modern education tools, identify different types of community change, and develop leadership skills. Girls will also work with their Global Action Team to create a Take Action Project, and after the Summit, will carry it out.
This is more than just a weekend camp. Girl Scouts commit to their Global Take Action Project through its completion in late July 2014. Girl Scouts will learn how to make a positive impact on the  research and advocacy of education for a worldwide community, and follow through on a large project.
