What do Girl Scout Ambassadors (grades 11-12) Do?

Ambassador Girl Scouts are ready to take on the world! They increase their leadership role in their troops, in their activities with younger Girl Scouts, and in their community. Girl Scout Ambassadors discover how to be an advocate for the causes they care about.

They may choose to plan and execute their Gold Award, the highest achievement in Girl Scouting, which is a prestigious affirmation that they are leaders who are organized, determined, and dedicated to improving their community.

Ambassador Meetings

Ambassadors run the show! They make all the plans for meetings, events, and trips. They raise funds for their activities and for their community service projects. They organize volunteers to achieve their goals.

Ambassador Troop Leaders will offer an "adult perspective" to help them as they plan to meet their goals. Parents are asked to support the troop by helping where needed.

Ambassador Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting

This all-in-one badge book and handbook is your guide to your Ambassador adventure. It complements the Girl Scout Journeys by helping girls build skills to become successful and gain the confidence to do amazing things!

Journeys For Girl Scout Ambassadors

On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do—whether it's performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking 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 Ambassadors in a troop work together on the same journey, which is decided at the beginning of the Girl Scout year.

The Ambassador Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting, the Ambassador Journeys and all patches are available at our council's Service Centers and our online shop

What is the Ambassador Uniform?

Girls can wear a Girl Scout Ambassador Membership Pin as a sign of their belonging to the Girl Scout Movement. Ambassadors 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.
