Explore your interests and expand your horizons by earning the following special patches and badges. They cover a wide range of topics and offer unique learning experiences, giving girls additional opportunities to Discover new things about themselves, Connect with each other, and Take Action on issues they care about.
GSNWGL has a committee of volunteers that looks at existing and new patch programs to review current and new opportunities. If you are interested in being part of this committee, please contact the program manager at your nearest Service Center.
