Global Action Team

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. 

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 "It's Your World, Change It!" Journey.

Leadership: The team leads the annual Global Action Summit—a weekend retreat for Cadette Girl Scouts. Next year's retreat will be June 7-9, 2019, at Camp Robbinswold. 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. 


The 2018-2019 team is focused on WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP, including politics and STEM. Global Action Team members will research the attributes and experiences of women leaders from around the world, and discover how they, too, can be leaders in their community, state, country, and world.


The culminating project is the Global Action Summit, which will be June 7-9, 2019 at Camp Robbinswold. At the Summit the Global Action Team teaches Cadette Girl Scouts about their topic as well as what it means to act through advocacy. Registration for the Summit will be open in early 2019.
