Bronze, Silver & Gold Awards

Girl Scouting's highest awards - the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards - are designed to help girls make a lasting difference in their community.

Take Action Training

This training is required for all girls who wish to pursue their Silver and/or Gold Award. It is an interactive and fun experience that gets girls thinking bigger about their community and the needs that they can help. We move beyond the service project model and introduce the concept of Taking Action - a project that is Global, Sustainable and Measurable.  Girls interested in earning the Silver Award must complete at least one Cadette Journey prior to attending the training.  Girls pursuing Gold must complete two Senior or Ambassador Journeys, (if they’ve earned their Silver Award, only one journey is needed) prior to training.

Upcoming Trainings will be held at the Tucson Resource Center on  Tuesday, August 25th, September 29th, October 27th, and January 26th.

We will be hosting Highest Awards Trainings in our outlying areas on the following dates:

  • Sunday, September 19th from 12:30-2:30 at the Nogales Resource Center
  • Saturday, October 11th from 12:30-2:30 at the Yuma Resource Center
  • Sunday, November 8th from 12:30-2:30 at the Sierra Vista Resource Center

*If your girl is interested in earning her PA/CIT/VIT Award we will also host a training in Nogales, Yuma, and Sierra Vista from 3:00-5:00 pm on the dates above. Girls must attend this mandatory training before receiving their award.

Girl Scouts Silver Award

Have you ever looked around your neighborhood or school and wondered how you could make a change for the better?

Girl Scout Bronze Award

Welcome to the Girl Scout Bronze Award, a leadership adventure and the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As you and your team plan and complete your project, you’ll develop more confidence, meet new people, and have the kind of fun that happens when you work with other Girl Scouts to make a difference.
