Ambassador Leader Resources
With a wider world comes even more opportunities—and Girl Scout Ambassadors make the most of every chance they get to improve themselves…and their world.

The National Park Service and Girl Scouts of the USA are commemorating the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment with a limited-edition commemorative patch, activity guide, activity log, certificate and special awards. See details under Girl Scouting From Home in the Documents section of this page.

Please see the attached updated emergency procedures documents. These can also be found in the Forms and Documents section of our website. • O-73A Emergency Action Plan - An EAP is required by Safety Activity Checkpoints for all Girl Scout activities. This checklist makes it easier to do. • O-73B Emergency Wallet Card - This has been updated and has a new form number. • O-73C Incident Report - Newly created report to be used to report any incident involving a girl or volunteer, whether it is major or minor. • O-73D Emergency Procedures - Updated procedures to be used in the case of serious, accident, emergency, or fatality.

Girl Scouts of all generations love the song Make New Friends but Keep The Old and here’s a chance to earn a FREE Friendship patch by doing just as this classic tune teaches us. Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is asking girls to expand their friendship circle by either inviting new girls to join their troop or by asking a lapsed troop member to return. Girls will receive a FREE Friendship patch by having either a new friend or a returning troop member join their troop from October 18th through November 30th. In addition, we’ll also be giving out fun prizes for troops who add two or more girls. Be sure to keep an eye our website, social media pages and the Online Community for more information. Use the attached document to access the Google form survey to claim your patch. Also attached is an invitation for girls to use.

 Important information about finances and graduating Girl Scouts 

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of many programs and activities that 12th grade Girl Scouts had planned for spring/summer 2020: extended travel, bridging-to-adult ceremonies, camping, Gold Award projects, and other Girl Scout activities. In response to this current situation, GSUSA and GSSJC will allow a one-time extension for 12th graders to use money-earned funds to reschedule these cancelled activities into the next membership year. 

To meet the needs of troops/groups or girls who had plans for spring/summer 2020 that were interrupted due to COVID-19, the deadline to use the funds will be extended from 9/30/20 to 8/31/21.  Troop should follow all procedures for disbanding troops by 8/31/21, including financial reconciliation and closing bank accounts. Funds intended to be used toward Gold Award projects must be raised and used by December 31, 2020.

All participants must maintain a current membership. The young alums participating in activities during the 2020-2021 membership year will be treated as Ambassadors. All activities and use of funds must be directly tied to the mission of Girl Scouts and be permitted Girl Scout activities by GSSJC. If you need more information on these guidelines, please contact your Volunteer Experience Manager.
