Older Girl Opportunities

Girl Scout teens and tweens do amazing things!

If you're a Cadette, Senior, or Ambassador (that is, if you're in middle school or high school), then Girl Scouts considers you an "Older Girl". Older Girls can help younger girls navigate the Girl Scout Cookie Program, lead community service efforts, participate in exclusive mentoring opportunities, or earn leadership and community problem solving awards.

Below are opportunities just for older girls, and be sure to check out our badge programs and events for Girl Scouts of all ages and events for even more older girl opportunities.

Leadership Development Programs

Serve your fellow Girl Scouts as a counselor-in-training at summer camps or become a Cookie Captain to help a younger Girl Scout start their own Cookie business. Girl Scouts offers older girls a variety of opportunities to practice and develop leadership skills.

Discover new opportunities in leadership that interest you most with the Leadership Exploration Advancement and Development (LEAD) program path. Choose from dozens of programs within LEAD that give you training and essential skills in the areas of mentoring, community leadership, advocacy, and preparing your future. 


Council-led travel and Destinations are the ultimate adventure for individual girls ages 11 and older. With different trips every year, there’s something amazing for every girl to experience. Make friends all over the country as you travel with Girl Scouts from different states!

Silver and Gold Awards

Girl Scouts' highest awards, the Silver and Gold Awards are a top-tier credential for Older Girls. These projects demonstrate extraordinary leadership, have a measurable and sustainable impact, and address a local change that relates to a national or global issue.

Career and College Readiness

Get ready for the next step! Your future can include community college, university, or technical school. Maybe you'll want to join the military or directly enter the workforce. No matter what your plans are, Girl Scouts is here to help you reach your goals.

Girl Advisory Board

We know Girl Scouts have great ideas, and the Girl Advisory Board is the best place to share them. Older Girls will have the opportunity to play a significant role in shaping the ongoing work of Girl Scouts of Central Texas.

Beyond Ambassadors

Just because you’re graduating doesn’t mean your Girl Scout journey has to end! Continue on as a Girl Scout graduate to stay connected through adult membership, volunteer opportunities, and more!
