Girl Scout JUNIORS

Girl Scouts in Grades 4-5


Who are Juniors?

Juniors take on most responsibilities for their troops, and act as leaders and managers. They work with younger girls and in the community.



Junior Meetings and Badges

Juniors make most decisions about their troop and can run their own meetings.  They gain tremendous confidence through planning their troop's activities for the year.

They collect dues, keep records, assign and carry out tasks and organize short trips.

They earn badges, which require some skill and proficiency.

Juniors may also work on the Leadership Award, Junior Aide, Junior Girl Scout Signs and the Bronze Award.

  4. Be A Helper
    Find a way to assist an older person in your community. Help an older neighbor with her gardening, help a friend's grandmother with chores, or read to someone whose eyesight is failing.

  5. Service Directory
    With your troop create a list of community agencies, schools, house of worship, or organizations that help older people. Contact each organization and find out if it allo2ws girls to volunteer. If it does, what commitment is required? Does the organization provide training? Compile this information in a directory. Work with your leader or another adult to make copies of the directory available for people who want to do service project.

  6. Girl Scouts Past and Present
    Find women in your community who were Girl Scouts from 1912 to 1950. Invite them to share their Girl Scout memories with you. What has stayed the same in Girl Scouting? What has changed?

  9. What's So Funny?
    Find out how humor has changed over the years. Look at cartoons or comic books from 20 or 30 years ago. Ask your local librarian to help you find them. Next, read the funnies in your local paper or your favorite comic book. What's different? What's the same?

  10. Food Through the Years
    Invite a senior citizen to do a cooking project with you. Prepare recipe she enjoyed as a youngster. Ask her how food preparation has changed.
