The organization announced this week the first of 18 new badges debuting in the fall of 2018. The Girl Scouts of the USA, founded in 1912, have long received badges when they master certain topics or skills.
The cybersecurity badge will launch in partnership with security firm Palo Alto Networks. The new badges will become available to participants in kindergarten through 12th grade over the next two years.
Girl Scouts CEO Sylvia Acevedo said the organization surveyed its members to learn which skills they wanted to acquire. The findings showed a strong desire for technical education.
