Patch Programs

Girl Scouts of Central Illinois offers girls many opportunities to take on new adventures while earning badges. Check out the patch programs available to girls and troops.

Monthly Patch Program

The GSCI Monthly Patch Program is for troops and girls who are interested in additional activities. A new patch program is offered each month for girls to be introduced to a new topic with little preplanning needed for leaders. Use the patch program as meeting filler, a pre-meeting activity for the month, or an at-home project.

When the patch program is complete, follow the link below to order the fun patch and complete an evaluation. Patches are $2 each and will be mailed the following month. Patches must be ordered by the 15th day of the following month.   

February Monthly Patch Program
February 1 - 28

Rosa Parks is known as the mother of the Civil Rights movement. She is best known for refusing to give up her seat on a bus after a long day at work, which then sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. After a year of the boycott, the Supreme Court decided that segregation laws on the bus were unconstitutional. Rosa continued to attend civil rights meetings. She became a symbol to many African-Americans of the fight for equal rights. In 1996, Rosa was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Learn more about Rosa Parks in this monthly patch!

March Monthly Patch Program
March 1 - 31

Jane Goodall is known for her years of living with chimpanzees in Tanzania, Africa. She has been recognized and awarded many times for her ground breaking discoveries about the behavior of chimpanzees – she discovered that they make tools, eat and hunt for meat, and have similar social behaviors to humans. Jane completely transformed the way we understand chimpanzees and fought for animal rights.
