Explore how powerful individual women have been throughout history, how your own individual powers can be linked together to create a powerful team, and how your team power can become community power.

3 parts to Earning this Journey:

  1. Power of One
    1. discover and share the powerful story of a forgotten woman or girl from around the world who mobilized others and made a difference
    1. use their own “power log” to discover all the ways their strengths and powers help them create change in the world
    1. discover what the Girl Scout Law and true “heroines” share
  2. Power of Team
    1. create a short “supergirl” story, comic, or TV script in which the characters take one small situation they care about and strive for long-lasting community change
    1. make a team decision and write their team hopes for a Take Action Project that reaches into a community network to solve a problem together with community members
  3. Power of Community
    1. take action on their plan, reach out, join others and get them involved, and start something that snowballs into a change in their world
    1. join in their Girl Scout Junior circle to reflect on what they accomplished and celebrate it

Multi-Level Matches

Check out other badges that might work well with this badge when doing activities with multiple levels.  These are simply suggestions and may take some creativity and extra steps to earn all the badges in various levels.

A Multi-Level Troop will need to do extra steps when earning different badges across levels. It depends on how many requirements overlap. Some will only have one or two matching requirements.

If there is no badge in a level, we suggest that a level earns a Fun Patch related to the rest of the badges instead of an official badge.

Anything that does not fit on the front can be placed on the back of the sash. Sashes will not hold a lot of badges and vests are recommended if you plan to earn badges.)
