Older Girl Opportunities

Girl Scout teens and tweens do amazing things! They 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 special interest clubs 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 her own Cookie business. Girl Scouts offers older girls a variety of opportunities to practice and develop leadership skills.

Council 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!

Career & 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.

Silver & 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 measurable and sustainable impact, and address a local change that relates to a national or global issue. Along the way, girls will develop skills ideal for their first real-world job and college applications.
