Selected applications will be sent to the WAGGGS review board in June for further selection.
Girl Scouts United for Change
Virtual Mini Session on the 66th Commission
on the Status of Women
Is your Cadette (rising 8th graders), Senior, and Ambassador Girl Scout passionate about climate change and gender equality? Are they interested in learning about advocacy and making their voices heard?

If so, be sure to tell them about this United Nations-inspired program taking place on Saturday, June 18, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET. Girl Scout delegates who participated in this year’s 66th Commission on the Status of Women invite girls in 8th through 12th grades to participate in a unique and empowering opportunity to learn about gender equality and climate change, understand what it takes to be a global advocate, and discuss and create action plans on these important issues.

Girls will earn a patch and leave the event ready and motivated to take action in their communities and change the world for the better.
