Spanish speakers offered Girl Scout Animal Helpers badge


Leading in Spanish is a first for local Girl Scout Council


BEDFORD, NH – For the first time, Spanish-speaking Girl Scouts in New Hampshire and Vermont have the opportunity to earn badges in their native language.

Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains, the council serving more than 10,000 girls across the two states, is offering the Animal Helper badge in both English and Spanish on Tuesday, September 1, to girls in grades 6-8.

Girl Scouts interested in the relationship between people and animals will learn about how they help and contribute to our lives and the world. They will do activities, play games, watch dogs and learn about them to earn their Animal Helper badge. This program will take place in English on Zoom on Tuesday, Sept. 1, from 4-6 p.m., and in Spanish from 6-8 p.m. Cadettes will earn and receive their Animal Helpers badge in the mail after attending the meeting. Materials needed (not included): a pencil, paper, an old shirt, and scissors.

Daley Buckwell, outreach support specialist for Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains, the council supporting girls across Vermont and New Hampshire, said “We hope we can engage girls virtually with this format so they can continue earning badges during the pandemic.”
