Patch programs provide Girl Scouts an opportunity to enjoy a variety of activities while earning a fun badge. Most patch programs are available to Girl Scouts of all grade levels, and some will list different requirements to complete the patch, depending on grade level. These programs can extend over multiple troop meetings and will cover a variety of subjects, such as healthy living, STEM, community service, and Appalachian history. Completing patch programs will help your troop along their Journey, and may satisfy requirements for certain badges. Check back for more fun patch programs to be added in the future! Don't forget to purchase patches from our shop once you've completed a program!
Celebrate some of history’s most notable women, ranging from activists to athletes, from scientists to poets. Each month, Girl Scouts will learn about a great woman’s impact on the world.
Girls will be guided through activities relevant to the notable woman’s story. Each patch ties into the Girl Scout program, be it by satisfying certain parts of a badge or Journey, or simply by showing girls what women of courage, confidence and character are able to accomplish.
Start off the program with the center patch, and earn a rocker for every month. After a full year, girls will have the whole set.

As Girl Scouts, we are leaders and changemakers. We stay eager to be part of something bigger than ourselves and believe that we can make the world a better place. That's why Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council is proud to offer the Hospital Helpers community service project.
This exciting opportunity will unite Girl Scouts with the West Virginia University School of Public Health to bring joy to children in hospitals. Involvement in the Hospital Helpers Program means helping children feel cared for and loved by their community.
To participate, Girl Scouts will take action by collecting items, fostering a sense of caring and learning about health care systems in their community.
Through this patch program, Girl Scouts will celebrate their Appalachian heritage. Each month, Girl Scouts will explore an Appalachian-centric theme and a Mountain Momma who impacted the culture, history, and created change in the community. Girls will be guided through a range of topics, and activities that will enhance their knowledge, while further cementing ties to their Appalachian heritage. This patch program has been created to compliment the four Girl Scout’s Program Pillars (Entrepreneurship, Life Skills, STEM, and Outdoors).
Girl Scouts, get ready to explore the outdoors with the Women of Courage Patch Program. Girl Scouts will face challenges and learn how to overcome them. Learning these outdoor skills will prepare Girl Scouts with the courage, confidence and character they will need throughout life.
The women highlighted in this patch program will show Girl Scouts that they can face any challenge that comes their way. Girl Scout will be guided through activities that will help them connect with the outdoors. Monthly themes and activities are linked to the Girl Scout Pillars: Life Skills, STEM, Entrepreneurship and Outdoors. Start the program with the Women of Courage patch. There are not specific requirements to purchase the patch. As Girl Scouts discover, connect, and take action, they will earn a monthly charm. After a whole year of activities, Girl Scouts will have earned the complete set!
