Adult Achievement Awards

Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England partners with 2,600 trained, dedicated and wonderful adult volunteers who share their time and talent with the girls in our council.

Of course, a smile, a verbal “thank you” or a quick note are terrific ways to let your leader or service team member know you care. But there are also many formal ways to recognize an adult volunteer's achievements.

Awards given out at the Annual Meeting are:

  • Appreciation Pin: Outstanding service that benefits one or more service units and contributes to council goals.
  • Honor Pin: Outstanding service that benefits two or more service units, etc.
  • Thanks Badge: Truly outstanding service that benefits the entire council or the GS organization as a whole. Service is so signficant that no other award would be appropriate.
  • Kit Hammett Award: Service exceeds the expectations for the positions held and benefits one or more service units within the council jurisdiction and contributes to the council's goals and objectives.
  • Mira Hoffman Award: Awarded in recognition of outstanding contributions to the work of the council and exemplifies the finest spirit of Girl Scouting.
