GIRL SCOUT ADULT RECOGNITIONS


Recognitions are not just for youth! Adults who work tirelessly and without pay to mentor young people deserve special acknowledgment as well. Two medals are specially designed with the adult religious recognition moderator in mind. The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Medal recognizes any adult who serves Catholic youth through national organizations such as Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., the St. Anne Medal, is the highest recognition for adults. These recognitions are not given based upon completion of a program, but are awarded by the Archdiocese of Boston to adults who model the highest ideals for young people. Suggested guidelines for the awarding of the medals are avail as follows.

Adult Recognition - St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

The Catholic Committee on Scouting of the Archdiocese of Boston has authorized the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Award.


The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton recognition was inaugurated in 1980 to recognize the meritorious contributions of adults who serve Catholic youth through Girl Scouts. This medal affirms the work of those who help youth develop their spiritual lives within the context of the organization. It is ordinarily received before the St. Anne Medal is earned, but is not a requirement for receiving the St. Anne Medal.




Adult Recognition - St. Anne

The Catholic Committee on Scouting of the Archdiocese of Boston has authorized the St. Anne Award.


The St. Anne Medal is the highest national recognition for adults who serve Catholic youth through Girl Scouts. The recognition was inaugurated in 1957. The purposes of the St. Anne recognition are to honor the outstanding services of adults who contribute to the spiritual development of Catholic young people in Girl Scouts and to further Catholic adult leadership in youth ministry through national youth-serving organizations.
