Older Girl Trainings

Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada

Limitless Opportunities

Now that you are older, the opportunities available to you through Girl Scouting become limitless – you can even become a Program Aide, a Counselor or Volunteer in Training, or earn your Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards!

These opportunities can jump start your future in a big way by broadening your experiences, building new skills, helping you make connections in the community, and rocking your resume.

Trainings By Level

  • Juniors can earn their Bronze Award
  • Cadettes can earn their Program Aide and Silver Award
  • Seniors and Ambassadors can earn Counselor in Training I and II, Volunteer In Training, and their Gold Award
