Two steps are needed to complete this badge:

  1. To earn the bar, first choose an organization you like to volunteer with. The organization will need to agree to give you instructions about the work you’ll be doing. Your council needs to approve your service, so check with them before you begin.
  2. Once you’ve chosen your organization, complete at least 20 hours of service to earn the bar.

Note – Please see our Affiliations page to know if any of the links on The Badge Archive benefit the website in anyway.

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.

Uniform Vest Placement

This pin should go where #12 is stated on the GSUSA Uniform Guide.

Note – The uniform guide shows the pin to be under a row of My Promise, My Faith and Cookie pins. This does not have to be placed under that row. All pins can be lined up together in the same row. The key factor is the pins should be placed under the Rainbow Bridging badge.

(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.)
