Earn the Including ALL Girls Patch

The Including ALL Girls Patch Program educates girls about inclusion and how they can include girls with disabilities in all aspects of Girl Scouts. The patch program will heighten Girl Scouts’ awareness, understanding and acceptance of people’s differences and disabilities. Girls will learn about what inclusion of girls with disabilities in Girl Scouting really is and how to ensure its growth in every environment.  The girls will take part in fun and educational activities and will receive the Including ALL Girls Patch for their participation.  All of the activities include easy-to-follow activity plans complete with discussion questions and material lists. You can obtain a copy of the patch program at http://www.gscnc.org/files/pdf/patches/Including_All_Girls_Patch_Program.pdf or you can request a copy from the Inclusion Resource Center by filling out the following request form.  

*Including ALL Girls was made possible by a generous grant from Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation.
