Through times of uncertainty and adjusting to a new normal, we have all experienced loneliness and isolation. Our council partnered with the State of Tennessee’s Department of Mental Health & Substance Abuse Services to develop a meaningful program that addresses mental wellness in a safe space where girls can discuss and share their feelings and thoughts. Teaching girls to be resilient, ready, and strong is our ultimate goal. We want girls to reach their highest potential and lift themselves and others up. This patch program guides girls through their own wellness journey and gives them the tools to help rise above emotional challenges. Click Here to Download the Patch Program.
Why earn the CEO Patch?
The CEO Patch, named for the work of the Chief Executive Officer, is seen in the public eye as a premier representation of the Girl Scout community. While earning the CEO Patch, girls learn the importance of positive recognition in her community and the media.
How do I earn my CEO Patch?
The CEO Patch is earned by completing any act that raises recognition for the mission of Girl Scouts. Recognition can be earned at school, church, on social networking sites, in the media, or any other avenue in which the act is made known to the public.
What it is like to be a CEO?
Here are some of the things you can do to earn your CEO Patch:
- Have your mayor sign a Girl Scout proclamation
- Submit an article to your local newspaper about a community service project
- Create a Girl Scout poster to hang at your local library
- Organize a Girl Scout Sunday/ Sabbath event at your church
- Talk to community leaders about what you’re learning in Girl Scouts and how they can support your troop.
To receive the CEO Patch girls must submit their activities, pictures and detailed information online.
After you earn your CEO Patch…
Every girl earning the CEO Patch will be invited to attend a “CEO Meet and Greet” reception! At the reception she’ll have a Meet & Greet with the CEO, participate in Girl Scout focus groups, and meet other CEO Patch recipients from around the council.
And, one lucky Girl Scout will be selected to be “CEO for a Day” where she’ll get to have a one-on-one meeting with the CEO and enjoy a day at the council.
