When girls make a difference in their community and practice the values of the Girl Scout Promise and Law, they can earn this award while getting involved with a cause they care about.
Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador Girl Scouts have the opportunity to earn their Community Service Bar. All girls interested in earning the Community Service Bar may do so by volunteering at least 20 hours for one organization. Girls must complete training with the sponsoring organization regarding her specific job duties too. These hours may not be rolled over from one level to the next. However, girls may earn all three bars by completing 20 hours of service at each level.
These service hours may not be applied towards any other Girl Scout award, Take Action project, or badge work. These hours must be documented and approved by an adult in charge of the service opportunity. Upon completion of the hours, completed the Community Service Bar Form, which will be submitted to the Girl Experience Team for approval.
