Hispanic Heritage Month

¡Yo soy una Girl Scout! Hispanic Heritage Month

During Hispanic Heritage Month, September 15 through October 15, we celebrate the countless contributions that Hispanic people and Latinos have made and continue to make in the United States. We honor the cultural richness of all people in the U.S. whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

How can you celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month as a Girl Scout?

By earning your "¡Yo soy una Girl Scout" patch!

Available to all program levels, this new patch program encourages girls to learn about the art, food, folklore and other traditions of the 21 countries generally included in Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations.
