Girl Scout Seniors increase their leadership role in their troops, in their activities with younger Girl Scouts, and in their community.
They may choose to work on Senior Journeys as preparation for their Gold Award, an invaluable learning opportunity that shows they are leaders who are organized, determined, and dedicated to improving their community.
Seniors rule! They make all the plans for meetings, events, and trips. They raise funds for their activities and for their community service projects.
Senior Troop Leaders will offer an "adult perspective" to assist them as they plan to meet their goals. Parents are asked to support the troop by helping where needed, such as with transportation.

This all-in-one badge book and handbook is your guide to your Senior 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 Seniors in a troop work together on the same journey, which is decided at the beginning of the Girl Scout year.
The Senior Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting, the Senior Journeys and all patches are available at our council's Service Centers and our online shop
Girls can wear a Girl Scout Senior Membership Pin as a sign of their belonging to the Girl Scout Movement. Seniors may also wear 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.
