About the Girl Scout Gold Award

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest and most prestigious award a young woman can earn in Girl Scouting. Gold Award Girl Scouts are making the world a better place through the design and completion of an 80+ hour Take Action project that will leave a sustainable legacy in neighborhoods throughout New York City and across the Country. Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts are able to work toward this award, with only 5% of eligible Girl Scouts earning her Gold Award.

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 more than 31,000 girls ages 5 to 18 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.
