Resilient. Ready. Strong. Mental Wellness Patch
Understanding how to boost your own mental wellness, reach out for
help when needed, and support others is a key life skill. Girl Scouts
already supports mental wellness by offering girls a safe space with
supportive adults, an opportunity to develop friendships and
belonging, a place to take positive risks and build confidence, and a
focus on giving back to your community and making a difference in the
world. When you look at any list of activities that researchers have
proven make people happier and more resilient, you’ll see a list of
what girls do in Girl Scouts: building social-emotional skills;
practicing gratitude and giving; finding community; experiencing
nature; exploring meaning; and changing the world.
Secret Agent Starter Pack- (K-3)
Girl Scouts of the USA has teamed up with AT&T to make STEM
(science, technology, engineering, and math) even more fun. The
activities in this booklet will sharpen your girl’s skills of
observation, technical design, and simple coding—all while building
her curiosity and confidence. But this is only a taste of what Girl
Scouts has to offer your girl.
Girl Scouts Give Back- Citizen Science (K-12)
There are meaningful and exciting ways for Girl Scout troops to
contribute to science, get outside, and help scientists solve some of
the big problems facing our planet. Especially now, with more people
are at home due to COVID-19, citizen scientists have a unique
opportunity to help by collecting data and reporting their findings.
We hope that your girls, troops and councils will participate in two
designated citizen science projects:
Girls of all ages can participate in the Great Sunflower Project .
Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors can choose between the Great
Sunflower Project and the Globe at Night project.
You do not need any science training to do these projects, and they
comply with social distancing guidelines.
