Their fellow committee members are experienced teammates just as invested in supporting girls and promoting the Gold Award brand across our community.

Gold Award Committee members help Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts earn the Girl Scout Gold Award with a project that meets GSUSA guidelines. To do so, they meet monthly to review the size, scope, and cost of each proposed project and make recommendations for project development, with the goal being to approve projects that are Girl Scout Gold Award caliber. They also mentor their Gold Award candidates, providing, as needed, one-on-one coaching sessions via phone, email or in-person, and support through the entire Gold Award process, including representing their projects at committee meetings. As a Gold Award expert, committee members seize opportunities to educate the community about the Gold Award at events, meetings, and in workshop settings.
