Soar to Ambassador!

Bridge to Girl Scout Ambassador patchThe Bridge to Girl Scout Ambassador Award patch Do you have a lot to give? Do you want your voice to be heard? Are you excited to get involved with people and causes you care about? Girl Scout Ambassadors is for you!

Ambassador is the highest level a girl can attain in Girl Scouts. As a Girl Scout Senior, you began exploring the wider world. When you become an Ambassador, you'll be ready to soar! Think of all your future holds and how being an Ambassador can set you on your way!

Are you planning to go to college? You can find out about life there by spending the night on a campus or attending a workshop run by Campus Girl Scouts. Or, take a Collegiate Challenge destination, an event designed just for Ambassadors.

If you're interested in politics, learn how to lobby your elected officials and then visit your state capital—or even federal representatives—and urge them to act on an issue you care about!

Want to see the world? You can plan a trip to one of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts World Centers or go on a destinations trip with other Girl Scouts.

Use all the confidence you've developed as a Girl Scout to really challenge yourself physically. Try kickboxing, SCUBA diving, a high adventure challenge course—or go on a Survivor Encampment to see if you've got what it takes to survive in the wild!

You'll have three new journeys to choose from—Your Voice, Your World; Justice; and Bliss—and new journey awards to earn.

Plus, you can earn the Girl Scout Gold Award, Girl Scouting's most prestigious award. You might even become one of the Girl Scout Young Women of Distinction, a national honor bestowed upon those who earn the Gold Award and do something really extraordinary.
