 About the Girl Scout Gold Award

Starting in 1916, the best and brightest of our Girl Scouts have earned the highest honor in Girl Scouting by improving themselves, their communities and the world by planning and implementing a Take Action service project, while leaving a sustainable legacy in neighborhoods throughout New York City and across the country. 

Now known as as the Girl Scout Gold Award, this is the pinnacle of accomplishment for our leadership programs.  Achieved by girls ages 14-17, the award focuses on leadership, career exploration, personal growth and community service. 

 

About the Girl Scouts of Greater New York

Since 1913, the Girl Scouts of Greater New York has served more than five million girls in New York City, preparing them to lead with courage, confidence and character, to make the world a better place. Today, we serve over 29,000 girls ages 5 to 17 in every zip code of New York City’s five boroughs. 70% of the girls we serve come from low-to-moderate income homes; their participation is heavily subsidized by the Council.  Funds raised at the Gala help us meet the rising demand for our leadership programs, and prepare today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders.
