The Gold Award Project
The Gold Award project is an individual project that a girl can
be passionate about—in thought, deed, and action. It fulfills a need
within a girl's community (whether local or global), creates change,
and is sustainable into the future. If it is an event, the event
should be something that people will want to continue for the next
year; if it is a service, it should be something that creates change
or action with long-term possibilities, empowering others besides just
the girl; if it is something tangible, it should come with a plan for
use and maintenance within the community. The project is more than a
good service project—it encompasses organizational, leadership, and
Gold Award Projects are approved and reviewed at the Council level.
Training is available to help girls and leaders get started. Council
staff and volunteers provide advice and support throughout the process.
