Sudden Service: Girls Making News
Represent the Council at high-profile events in the Greater Washington Region.
Each year our Council receives requests from local and national organizations and governmental agencies for Girl Scouts to perform duties such as flag ceremonies, help at receptions and special events and speak with media about the opportunities available to all Girl Scouts.
Sudden Service was created to allow Girl Scouts to take part in these often prestigious and limited access events. These requests--often made at the last minute--may ask for a specific number of girls, or a particular age group.
Girl Scouts participating in Sudden Service events must have a complete uniform with properly placed insignia. Girls must also have a signed photo release to participate.
After completing their first Sudden Service event, participating Girl Scouts will receive a Sudden Service patch for their uniform. Sudden Service events will count toward Council service hours.
