About the Girl Scout Gold Award
Starting in 1916, the best and brightest of our Girl Scouts improved themselves, their communities and the world through their Gold Award project, leaving a sustainable legacy in neighborhoods throughout New York City and across the Country. The Girl Scout Gold Award 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.
While the name of the award has changed over the years, the impact has remained consistent. These extraordinary young women have led with courage, confidence and character, to make the world a better place.
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 nearly 28,000 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.
