A Girl Scout Gold Award project is something that a girl can be passionate about. It creates change or action with long-term possibilities, empowering others besides just the girl. The project is more than a good service project—it encompasses organizational, leadership, and networking skills. The Gold Award is highly respected by colleges, universities and employers.
