New Girl Scout Badges Power Girl Leadership
Girl Scouts of Central Indiana, along with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), recently revealed 30 new badges for girls ages 5–18 to address some of society’s most pressing needs such as cybersecurity, environmental advocacy, mechanical engineering, robotics, computer science, and space exploration. Girl Scouts worked with top organizations like the Cyber Innovation Center, the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics and the Museum of Science to design the most cutting-edge programming available to girls.
“Girl Scouts are learning how to proactively address some of the foremost challenges of today while also building skills like confidence and perseverance that will set them up for a lifetime of leadership,” said Girl Scouts of Central Indiana’s Chief Executive Officer Danielle Shockey. “Most importantly, Girl Scouts offers girls a sense of belonging and a place to find their voice.”
