Ongoing Patch Programs
Wells Fargo Hands On Banking Program
GSAK has teamed with Wells Fargo to provide real-life money-management experience for girls of all ages. Simply complete five grade level-appropriate activities and submit your patch order form to the GSAK Council office. Troops can also set up a tour of a Wells Fargo branch or have a Wells Fargo representative co-teach an activity! View the Hands On Banking program packet.
Natural Resources Patch Series
Along with Alaska Resource Education (ARE), GSAK has developed four new patches, the first of their kind in the nation: energy, minerals, forestry, and natural resources. The Natural Resource Patch Series is designed to teach girls about the resources and diversity of our state and its industries. ARE has adapted their most popular and innovative lessons for the patch requirements to get girls engaged in Alaska’s natural resources and the important role they play in our state. View the Natural Resources Patch Series booklet.
Strong Girls Healthy Meeting Patch
The Strong Girls Healthy Meeting Patch helps Girl Scouts make healthy habits the norm during meetings and spread these habits to their friends, family, and community. Troop leaders: Get started at your next meeting by following these steps.
