Girl Scouts Keeping Up with the Times
The Girl Scouts are still vibrant and growing even after 100 years. What keeps this organization relevant to the hip young girls of today? Updates!
To mark its centennial year the Girl Scouts recently introduced 82 new and updated badges intended to keep up with the changing times. New badges include customer loyalty, the science of happiness, “netiquette” or applying good manners online, pet care, financial literacy, digital moviemaking, product design, science and engineering, and many others.
One thing that hasn’t changed after all these years is proudly displaying your badges of accomplishment on your vest or sash.
