Girl Scout Juniors earn badges and discover what girl power is all about through new activities and by learning to take charge of their own plans. They gain self-confidence as they explore the world in partnership with their troop leaders.
Girl Scout Juniors are ready to work on their Bronze Award, a leadership adventure and the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As they plan and complete their project they develop more confidence, meet new people, and have the kind of fun that happens when Girl Scouts work together to make a difference.
Juniors may run portions of their own meetings -- setting the program, taking turns guiding their sister Girl Scouts through the Girl Scout promise, songs, financial report, activities, closing..whatever works for your troop. Meetings may include planning for upcoming events, trips and outings. They also have fun earning badges and patches, and organizing activities for Brownie and Daisy Girl Scouts.
Junior Troop Leaders encourage girls to take on leadership tasks within the framework of the troop meeting. Parents are asked to support the leader by helping where needed, such as with transportation, group snacks, or family outings.

This all-in-one badge book and handbook is your guide to your Junior adventure. It complements the Girl Scout Journeys by helping girls build skills to become successful and gain the confidence to do amazing things!
On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do—whether it's performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking simple meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply—is aimed at giving them the benefits of the Girl Scout "Keys to Leadership": Discover, Connect, Take Action.
All Juniors in a troop work together on the same journey, which is decided at the beginning of the Girl Scout year.
The Junior Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting, the Junior Journeys and all patches are available at our council's Service Centers and our online shop
Girls can wear a Girl Scout Junior Membership Pin as a sign of their belonging to the Girl Scout Movement. Juniors also enjoy wearing a sash or vest to proudly display their badges and patches! Each troop decides which components of the official uniform to wear to represent their Girl Scout troop.
