Daisy to Ambassador Levels
Troops and group leaders (adult facilitators), as well as individual girls and adults should feel free to use their local community contacts to design community service that is of interest to them.
Please keep in mind the following questions when deciding on a community service project.
Does the project:
· Provide service to someone in the community rather than to Girl Scouts?
· Allow for girl involvement and responsibility both in planning and execution?
· Offer opportunities for girls to get to know new people?
· Provide for understanding the responsibility of citizenship?
· Focus on the contemporary interests and concerns of young people?
· Provide for an involvement with people of different backgrounds?

Service Project Ideas
We are always considering new opportunities for meaningful service. Thinking Day, for example, can provide a theme for troops to focus on as well. Recycling was the theme one year, giving girls an opportunity to focus on our environment locally, nationally, and globally. For other ideas, check out the resource sectionof our website, scour the newspaper, or consult a local house of worship.
This responsibility will give girls quite a boost in self-esteem. As safety is important, please contact us at

Your local community pantry or worship center is sure to have daily or weekly opportunities for you to help prepare and/or serve.
You can develop leadership skills such as teaching, planning, and monitoring. Parents will appreciate that you provide them with information about their child’s progress and any problems they might be experiencing.
