Girls Volunteering in the Community for their Bronze Award

Bronze Award

When Girl Scout Juniors team up to make a difference in their community, they learn important leadership skills, discover new passions, and watch how seemingly small actions make a big difference. It all adds up to the Girl Scout Bronze Award—the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior (grades 4-5) can achieve. Download the Bronze Award guidelines to find out how.
