What Seniors and Ambassadors Do

Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors are ready to take the world by storm—and Girl Scouts will give them millions of ways to do it.

They can travel to amazing places like Costa Rica, Japan, or India; explore exciting careers in a variety of fields, from science to the arts to education to government; take on big projects and help others in a big way. And, of course, they can earn their Gold Award, which (by the way) adds that “little something extra” to their college applications. Seniors and Ambassadors are eager to spread their wings—and Girl Scouts helps them take flight.

Ambassador Journeys

It's Your Story - Tell It! Bliss: Live It! Give It!
Learn to dream big and begin your legacy as a leader who helps others achieve their dreams. As you prepare to move from high school into the next phase of your life, Bliss helps you navigate life’s twists and turns in order to realize your dreams, whether you want to win a Gold Medal, discover a vaccine that cures a disease or run for president.

It's Your Planet - Love It! Justice
On this Journey to JUSTICE, explore environmental justice (and injustice) from many angles including science, math and decision-making. Ultimately, you can create and present you own unique definitions for justice!

It's Your World - Change It! Your Voice, Your World: The Power of Advocacy
How often have you seen something that really needed to be changed and wondered, “Why isn’t someone doing something about that?” This Journey gives you a way to be that someone — an advocate with the power to start the first flutter of real and lasting change. While creating your own “butterfly effect,” you’ll gain an array of skills — such as networking, planning and learning to speak up — that will benefit you as you prepare for life beyond high school.
