PROGRAM OVERVIEW

 

PROGRAM GOALS

LIFE SKILLS

Thousands of badges in nine Areas of Discovery, including the outdoors, encourage lifelong learning and allow girls to learn a multitude of life skills in any area that interests them.  Higher awards, such as our Life Skills Achievement award, take it to the next level, preparing girls for adult life out on their own.   Frontier Girls encourages girls to step out of their comfort zone and try something new, collecting skills and wisdom to become the architects of their own destiny.

 

SERVICE

Frontier Girls encourages every Frontier Girl to help better her community and the lives of the people around her.  Each troop is required to do a minimum of three service projects each year; one for the community, one for whoever hosts your troop meetings, and one ongoing project of the girls’ choice.  For example, your troop may choose to sing Christmas carols to the elderly (local community), weed the parking lot of the church that hosts your troop meetings, and ring bells for Salvation Army each year.

 

PATRIOTISM

Patriotism is a character trait we take very seriously in Frontier Girls. All meetings begin with a formal flag ceremony and girls are taught a proper respect for both flag and country. Girls who belong to military families wear a special “Patriot” insignia on their uniforms so others may show them the respect their family deserves for the sacrifices they make.  As a strong supporter of both our active and retired military, Frontier Girls encourages members to show their thanks and appreciation through a variety of service projects.

 

BADGES AND AWARDS

Frontier Girls offers thousands of badges in nine Areas of Discovery.  Each badge is offered to all six age levels with requirements spiraling back as the girls age to insure they did not miss anything while also adding new and more difficult requirements.  This format allows multi-age troops to all work together on the same badges.
