Badges and Patches
By providing guidance to neighbors on how to get prepared for emergencies, Girl Scouts can earn a special patch.

LeanIn.Org and Girl Scouts of the USA are kicking off Ban Bossy, a public service campaign to encourage leadership and achievement in girls. When it comes to girls and ambition, the pattern is clear: girls are discouraged from leading. When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a “leader.” Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded “bossy” — a precursor to words like “aggressive,” “angry,” and “too ambitious” that plague strong female leaders. Calling girls bossy is one of many things we do to discourage them from leading. This activity teaches girls how to use I-Statements to resolve conflicts and speak directly with others about their feelings—important leadership skills they can use throughout their lives!
