Service Opportunities

As we learn of additional service opportunities we will add them to this section. Make sure you check the Community Service Rallyhood too!

Face Masks

Girl Scouts can support their communities’ by making face masks. The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies)

Girl Scouts can contact local nursing homes, hospitals, food banks, homeless shelters, and essential workers and offer to make face masks. Make sure you get their requirements and quantity needed. If you are having difficulty finding somewhere to donate masks, click here to search by state to find where masks are needed. Additionally, Montgomery County Mask Makers is coordinating how to get masks into a supply chain where the need is greatest. . GSUSA is working with Feeding America to distribute masks to support local food banks and the communities they serve. Visit and enter your zip code to identify a local FA food bank.

Helpful resources to get started on making a face mask:

CDC face covering information

Joann Fabrics- make to give

GSUSA has put together additional resources to get you started on your face masks. Check out Girl Scouts Give Back: Face Mask Making Project to see: Face Masking Making Instructions for Troop Leaders, How to Donate Face Masks for Troop Leaders, and a sample letter to include when sending masks.

Disclaimer about masks: Fabric face masks are not medical-grade and not a replacement for medical-grade personal protective equipment

Girl Scouts Give Back: Citizen Science

Girl Scouts USA is encouraging girls and troops to contribute to important scientific research from home! By becoming citizen scientists, Girl Scouts can help scientists solve some of the big problems facing our planet. Check out GSUSA’s website to learn how to participate in the citizen science projects listed below through our partnership with SciStarter. By participating in one of our Girl Scouts Give Back citizen science projects, girls will contribute to scientific research and make the world a better place.   

Troop Leader Instructions

The Great Sunflower Project (All ages): Some bee populations have experienced severe declines that may affect food production. However, there’s little information about how a decline in the bee population can influence gardens. The Great Sunflower Project makes it easy to gather this information. Find a plant in your yard or neighborhood, observe it for 5+ minutes, record all the pollinators that visit, and share your data online.

Globe at Night (Cadettes, Seniors, and Cadettes): Light pollution not only affects our view of the stars, but it also wastes energy and money, causes sleep disorders in people, and disrupts the sleeping and breeding habits of animals like newly hatched sea turtles. In this project, you’ll go outside and compare how many stars you can see in a constellation to how many stars you should be able to see. You’ll mark your location, share if it’s cloudy, and tell the project if you were or were not able to see the stars.

Girl Scouts Give Back: Letter Writing Service Project

Girl Scouts Give Back: Letter Writing Service Project

The idea is simple: girls write letters to people in nursing homes, senior residences, and assisted living facilities, including dedicated staff and caregivers. This long-distance hug is a way to share your good thoughts with these vulnerable and loved community members.

GSUSA has put together some helpful resources to get you started on your letters. Click on the title above to see:

In addition to service hours, the Pen Pal program can help meet badge requirements! You can apply this activity to "Making Friends" for Brownies, or "Social Butterfly" for Juniors.

Girl Scouts Give Back: Fighting Hunger

More than 50 million adults, kids, and families in the U.S. are experiencing food insecurity, a number that has only increased since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and may include members of our own communities, friends, and family, or members of our troops, making this a sensitive and important take action issue for Girl Scouts.

As they think about how to give back this holiday season, girls can make a big difference in their communities—and for children around the world—by supporting hunger relief efforts. There are lots of ways for your troop to make an impact, whether you’re meeting safely in person or virtually, and even if you aren’t able to give food directly:

STEM Resources

STEM for Scouts- A principle of the Girl Scouts of the USA is to break down barriers. This includes not letting COVID-19 be an obstacle for progress! Our “Earn your Badge from Home” program utilizes online tools such as Google Classroom, to provide a simple step-by-step process your scouts can complete earning their Coding for Good Badges, all on their own! We work with troop leaders, one-on-one, to schedule a convenient time for scouts to log in as a group or individually.

Our pre-recorded online sessions are structured around badge curriculum and include:
- A fun coding project tutorial on Scratch (an online block-based programming website for kids)
- Discussion about computer science principles
- Breaks to watch attached videos to learn about amazing female leaders in the tech space
Videos are carefully designed to be extremely similar to an in-person experience and students can learn at their own pace. A teacher will be available for immediate online assistance for pre-booked programs.
We strongly encourage you to watch a brief video explanation of our program and see just how easy the whole process is! Please visit this link.
Check out or email for more information.

Boolean GirlFull STEM Ahead is a series of FREE, online events with a live instructor teaching kids to Code, Build, Invent, and Animate. Join us each Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 3 PM eastern for a new episode and a new project. Each day we will lead you through a project where we code, or build something new and fun.  Girl Scouts can use these porjects to complete coding badges. 

Challenger CenterSTEM at Home is a collection of Challenger Center lessons and activities that can be modified and completed at home. Each STEM at Home category includes at least one at-home lesson. These activities require common household items or products that are readily available online. All STEM at Home lessons are marked with an asterisk * on the lesson page.

Give Your Girl Scout a STEM Adventure
Classroom Adventures are online experiences that take students on journeys to explore and discover real-world STEM challenges. Designed for 3rd-5th graders. Thanks to Washington Space Business Roundtable's sponsorship, 30 Girl Scout troops from the Nation's Capital region will search for a missing Hawaiian monk seal, identify bones of a ground sloth, and help save the Smoky Mountains from a mysterious plant. Schedule your adventures today! Email or call 202-827-1580.

Destination Moon
Students launch Blue Origin’s New Glenn and deploy the Blue Moon lunar lander on a cargo mission to the Moon. Students work in teams to monitor the engines and the structure of the rocket and the lander (including recovery of the reusable first stage on a boat). Students will also monitor and adjust trajectory based on data about space weather and debris and choose an optimal Moon landing site

Destination Mars                          
The Mission: Researchers are ready to explore Mars, but there’s one glaring problem – more than 40 million miles separate Earth from the Red Planet. This distance makes it impossible to travel back and forth between the two planets while completing our research. We need to build a base on one of the Red Planet’s moons, Deimos or Phobos, that will allow us to send a spacecraft to the surface of Mars and back in the fastest and safest way possible. Student teams will select which moon is best to build a base by analyzing three sets of data collected by rovers on Deimos and Phobos.

The team’s research efforts come to a halt when they encounter a critical emergency – a solar storm approaches and all communication signals are lost. To successfully explore Mars’ moons and complete the mission, the students must work together to protect the rovers and restore communication, analyze the data from their experiments, and select a moon to build a base.

Learn about the Moon phases
Calling all Brownies: ever wonder how the Moon looks like a sliver during certain times of the month but, other times looks like a circle? Come learn about the Moon phases with this easy to do activity. In Moon Phases, students will assemble a model from cups and paper that will help them understand the names of the Moon phases, shapes of Moon phases, and how Moon phases occur. This activity would fulfill the Make a Moon art project badge requirement for the Space Science Adventurer badge.

Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center Spark!Lab- Spark!Lab is a hands-on invention studio in the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. Spark!Lab activities communicate that invention is a process, rather than a single “Aha!” moment; provide visitors with opportunities to explore the invention process and their own inventiveness; and demonstrate the central role that invention plays in American history—and today.

Virtual Invention Challenges:
Users pick their challenge and are guided through the steps of the invention process - in a style similar to the facilitation approach used in the Spark!Lab. At the "Create it" step, users link over to a related Tinkercard portal where they can build and tweak their virtual inventions using parts provided or by creating their own elements. The five challenges are: Help Clean Up the Ocean, Invent a Musical Instrument, Reinvent the Shopping Cart, Design a Spacecraft, and Design a Stadium.

Spark!Lab's Now What? Invention Game
Unexpected problems often call for inventive solutions. Users create inventions based on random prompts, leading to unpredictable and fun outcomes.

Tudor Place Historic House and Garden- Step into the shoes of architect William Thornton and design your own houses. Imagine new ways to use everyday items that are normally thrown away. Create designs for a brand new house. List the things that a person needs in a home. Solve a problem for housing needs. Share with someone how you would use your new idea. Brownies will be able to complete all activities needed for the Inventor badge.

We've broken down the project into nine manageable steps for students in grades 6-8 and ten more research-intensive steps for high school students, with one lesson per step. This project-based unit is perfect for troops and girls working to earn their Bronze, Silver, or Gold Awards. Sign up for a free iCivics Parent or Educator account to access the resources.

Free Personal Safety Workshop for Girl Scouts K-5th Grade from KidsSmartz-D, B, J, C
