- Community Service Bars
The Community Service Bar can be earned by Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador Girl Scouts by making a difference in the community and practicing the values of the Girl Scout Law. It is also a way for girls to get involved with a cause they care about.
Girl Scouts have the option to complete their Cadette, Senior, or Ambassador Community Service Bar as well as the Service to Girl Scouting Bar, but they must be different projects. To complete the Service to Girl Scouting Bar, Girl Scouts must volunteer at least 20 hours within Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee.
Your application must be approved before you can start your Community Service Bar project. Contact Highest Awards with any questions.
Community Service Bar Process
- Faith Based Awards
While we are a secular organization, Girl Scouts has encouraged girls to take spiritual journeys via their individual faith recognitions since the movement began in 1912.
My Promise, My Faith Pin
Girls of all grade levels can now earn the My Promise, My Faith pin developed by Girl Scouts of the USA. This pin, which girls can earn once a year, allows all girls to further strengthen the connection between their faith and Girl Scouts. Pin requirements for all levels are included in Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting or in this document.
Girl Scouts recognizes and respects the religious diversity that exists within our communities. Girls in the same troop often represent a wide variety of faiths. Religious recognitions are associated with specific faith groups and are awarded after completion of a program developed by that community.
Each religious organization/committee develops and administers its own program. The To Serve God religious recognitions brochure shows the religious recognitions that have been created by various faith groups.
