Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama is pleased to announce a new patch program, Pink Princesses, created by a Girl Scout in Baldwin County.

The objective of the Pink Princesses Patch Program is to teach girls awareness, pride and confidence in the qualities that make them a unique individual.  It encourages them to stand up for their beliefs, and works on ways to resist pressure to behave in ways that contradict their beliefs or violate their individuality.  The program encourages them to model their good character and independence for all to see!

A special component of this patch program is an opportunity to have the Pink Princesses come to your troop meeting to perform the skit, Staying True Never Goes Out of Style.

Each year, an increasing number of families across America struggle to find living wage jobs, and as a result more and more families find themselves experiencing episodic or chronic homelessness.  Children are most acutely impacted by this experience.

A patch program, called "A Heart for the Homeless" teaches girls about the issues facing homeless families in their communities.  The children explore ideas as to how they can help families and kids in need.

In the past 3 years, nearly 300 Girl Scout troops and over 3,100 girls from New York to Hawaii earned the patch.  Click here to learn about all the details of "A Heart for the Homeless" patch program.
