2014 Monthly Patch Programs

Looking for some additional fun activities for your troop or just to do on your own? GSCTX now offers a Monthly Patch Program! Each month a new patch program will be offered. You will have the entire month to complete all requirements of the patch. For some patches your time frame is extended to allow enough time to complete all requirements. If you complete all the patches for the year you will earn an exclusive 2014 Monthly Patch Program Patch!

Each patch program will include:

• A specific program area of concentration.

• The opportunity for girls to discover, connect and take action.

• Activities for all Girl Scout age levels.

• Additional listing of resources to help with executing the patch program.

When you have completed the patch program each month place your patch order through E-Council ($2.00 each) by the 15th of the following month. Patches will be mailed to you after the monthly deadline.

If you have any questions, please contact Sherry Wolfe, Director of Program Services at (512) 490-2324 or SherryW@gsctx.org.

 

May Patch Program

banbossy

We are thrilled to announce the partnership between Girl Scouts and Sheryl Sandberg's LeanIn.org to introduce Ban Bossy, a campaign designed to help girls flex their leadership muscles!

 From the CEO of world’s largest company to the CEO of her family at home, we want girls to be whatever they dream without fear of being called “bossy.”
Take the pledge to Ban Bossy online and share facts and figures on girls’ leadership; read Ban Bos
sy quotes from leaders and celebrities, and download our leadership tips encouraging girls and women to lead throughout their lives. When the girls participate in the activity, they can earn the "I'm a Leader" patch.

JUNE PATCH PROGRAM

Girl Scouting can be a year-round activity for girls. Just because school is out for the summer does not mean girls should not continue to “grow strong.” The summer months provide unique opportunities for Girl Scouts to participate in activities that require warmer weather or take longer to accomplish.

July Patch Program

outisin

Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month.  This year the National Recreation and Park Association is focusing on setting trends instead of following them, making 2014 the year people go outside, change their outlook, and get involved in their community through parks and recreation.

AUGUST PATCH PROGRAM

blogging

Blogging is a great way for Girl Scouts to practice learning about technology in a safe and monitored way. It is also a fun way to get Girl Scouts working on their writing skills.  Both of these skills are important in today’s world and will continue to be very important in the future.  This patch program is intended to be done over the course of more than a month.  If you are working on this patch please place the order by September 15th even if you are still in the process of completing all of the steps.
