Monday, March 12: Girl Scout Birthday

Celebrate National Girl Scout Day by reconnecting with the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Learn more about Girl Scout history and our founder, Juliette Gordon Low; you could even hold a Girl Scout birthday party. (We’re 105 this year!) Do something to make the world a better place.

Tuesday, March 13: Take Action

Be a go-getter and take action! You might launch a community service project or work toward a Girl Scout award.

Wednesday, March 14: Explore STEM

Be an innovator and explore science, technology, engineering, and/or math (STEM)! You could create a fun project through Made with Code, meeting challenges head on and exploring new solutions.

Thursday, March 15: Get Outdoors

Be a smart risk-taker and step out of your comfort zone! Get outside to explore and take action to protect our environment. Try a new outdoor activity with family or friends. Sign up for Girl Scout summer camp—or plan a different adventure. It could take place close to home, or around the world!

Friday, March 16: Be a Leader

Be a leader and show people you care! Commit “random acts of kindness” all day long. Be a good friend. Volunteer or donate to charity. Show the world your smile!

Saturday, March 17: Get Involved Civically

Get involved civically! Connect with your local (or school) officials and leaders. Learn about Girl Scouts' legislative agenda. Work toward earning your Global Action award.

But don’t stop there! Learn more about Girl Scout traditions and ceremonies. Or…take the lead like a Girl Scout and come up with some fun and meaningful activities of your own!

Above all, take the opportunity during Girl Scout Week, and throughout the year, to share your awesome—and show the world how your courage, confidence, and character make the world a better place.
