Council Patch Program

Patch programs are a great way to explore a wide variety of topics. Detailed booklets describing the requirements for each patch are available below. Have fun exploring, Girl Scouts!

The Mining in Today's World Patch Program explores all areas of the mining industry and the impact mining has in today's world.

 As per Tyre L. Gray, Esq., president of the Nevada Mining Association:

“Americans born today will require more than three million pounds of mined materials in their lifetime. As new technologies continue to change the world, mining will produce the minerals needed to help shape our future. The Nevada Mining Association is thrilled to introduce Girl Scouts across the country to mining and to help create the next generation of leaders.”

The activities for the Mining in Today's World Patch Program are age-specific so that Daisies through Ambassadors can age-appropriately participate in this special opportunity! We thank the Nevada Mining Association for sponsoring this patch and giving Girl Scouts the opportunity to investigate mining in today's world.

This program and patch can be purchased individually for $5 or $25 for a troop ($25 covers up to 10 girls, each additional patch will be $2.50). Please fill out the formstack in the link below to receive your program and patch.

Girl Scouts Donate Life Patch

Did you know that there are 115,000 men, women, and children waiting for lifesaving organ transplants? Even the largest football stadium in the United States couldn’t fit the number of patients on the national transplant waiting list.

In collaboration with Donor Network West and Donate Life, GSSN is proud to present the Donate Life Patch Program – a unique opportunity for Girl Scouts to explore how we can make a big difference in the lives of transplant patients through organ and tissue donation. Just one organ donor can save as many as eight lives! By the end of this program, Girl Scouts will gain knowledge about organ donation and feel ready to inspire their friends, families, and communities to donate life.

This patch program is available for Daisies through Ambassadors and can be completed as an individual Girl Scout or as a troop. This program and patch can be purchased individually for $5 or $25 for a troop ($25 covers up to 10 girls, each additional patch will be $2.50).

As Girl Scouts, we all know that within the smallest acts of kindness is the power to change the world for the better. And now, there's a patch for doing exactly that!

In collaboration with the non-profit organization Think Kindness, Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada (with the help of our amazing 2017-18 Girl Board Members Danielle and Baylee) has created the Kindness Patch Program -- a fun opportunity to explore the joys of doing good deeds and become a Kindness Champion! This program is open to Girl Scouts of all ages and consists of five engaging steps. By the end, you will have made your community a better place and inspired others to spread the message of kindness wherever they are.

Peace Begins at Home Patch

Domestic violence is defined as violent or aggressive behavior within the home. On a typical day, there are more than 20,000 phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide.

Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada is reintroducing the Peace Begins at Home patch program. By completing this patch, girls will investigate what domestic violence is, discover where they can find resources about domestic violence, and explore how they can help others in domestic violence situations.

This patch was originally written in 2008 as a multi-agency collaboration and the activities included in it are still very relevant to our society today. We have updated the Appendix section of this patch program’s requirements to include up-to-date web sites, resources, and phone numbers. This patch program is available for Daisies through Ambassadors. Click here to view the patch requirements. Once you have completed the Peace Begins at Home patch program, please fill out this survey. After we receive your survey, we will mail your patch(es) to you.
