FAQ

What is the FirstEnergy Girl Power patch program?

The FirstEnergy Girl Power patch program is presented in partnership with the FirstEnergy Foundation. These STEM programs put an electric spin on our Girl Scout badges and Journeys.

What are the options for completing the FirstEnergy Girl Power patch program?

Option 1: Girl Power Virtual Program – This option is conducted on Zoom by GSNEO STEM program facilitators. The program will meet twice, with each session lasting 3 hours.  The zoom link and a list of supplies needed for the program activities will be sent via email when you register for the program.  

Option 2: Girl Power Badge Bundle – Order a box kit with instructions and supplies to complete the activities on your own.  Some readily available household supplies will not be included in the kit and girls will need to secure these at home.  The kits will include instructions for badge requirements with additional Girl Power activities.  Box kits will be available for Daisy, Brownie, Junior and Cadette age levels.  Both the Girl Scout badge and the FirstEnergy Girl Power patch are included in this kit.  

Option 3: Girl Power In-Person Program-   Join us in person for programming conducted by our GSNEO STEM program facilitators. 

Will my girl earn any badges?
