Is your Girl Scout or troop working on a Service Award?

In addition to the Silver and Gold Awards, Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors (grades 6-12) have a special opportunity to earn two different type of service awards:


Community Service to Girl Scouts


This award is earned when a girl/troop completes 20 hours of volunteer service to Lakeville Girl Scouts. Volunteer Service can include:


  • Volunteering at a Lakeville Service Unit Event (Daisy Days, Cookie Rally, World Thinking Day)
  • Helping another younger troop/girl with an activity or badge
  • Help develop and lead an event (small or big) for girls in the Lakeville Service Unit


Girls/troops keep track of their service hours "on their honor" on this form.


Community Service to Community


This awards requires a minimum of 20 hours of volunteer service in an area of interest for the girl/troop. There is an online form the needs to be completed prior to volunteer service for our council Girl Scouts River Valleys to approve the non-profit charity or cause where the girls will perform the service. 


Once the non-profit is approved, volunteer hours can be tracked on this log.
