Released in 2011.
The Brownie Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting page has the information on when all badges were released.
Find out how to take care of yourself, your family, your Girl Scout sisters, and your community—do an activity with your family to chart everyone’s special talents, play games at your troop meetings to learn how to work together, or do a fun “clue hunting” activity to learn the Girl Scout Law.
4 parts to Earning this Journey:
- The Discover Key – To earn this award, each Girl Scout Brownie will discover:
- Their special qualities and talents
- Values of the Girl Scout Law
- Special qualities and values of family
- The Connect Key – To earn this award, each Girl Scout Brownie will connect:
- As a Brownie Team
- With their families on healthy living activities
- With their communities to increase healthy living opportunities
- The Take Action Key – To earn this award, Girl Scout Brownies will:
- Identify a community place where they can take action
- Plan to Take Action
- Improve their world by carrying out their Take Action Project
- The Brownie Quest Award – At the end of the Quest, the girls also earn the journey’s culminating award, the master lock that needs all three of their keys in order to open. Through this award, the Brownies will see that, together, their three keys—Discover, Connect, and Take Action—unlock the meaning of leadership.

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.
- Daisy – Between Earth and Sky – Feelings, talents, protect national treasure (the TAP)
- Brownie – Brownie Quest – Talents, teamwork, TAP
- Junior – aMUSE – roles, stereotypes, TAP
- Cadette – aMAZE – healthy relationships, navigating cliques, moving beyond stereotypes, TAP
- Senior – Mission Sisterhood: self-reflection and healthy relationships, find issue that women face and research it, TAP
- Ambassador – Public Policy – make a TAP to solve a local problem
Uniform Vest Placement
This Journey badge set should go where #17 is stated on the GSUSA Uniform Guide.
(Note – Badges and pins on a sash simply go in order (top of sash to bottom of sash) of Identification badges, bridging badge, pins, journeys, and other badges. 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.)
