Girl Scouts SUN Patch Program

Calling all girl scout troop leaders and councils who are interested in solar!

Solar United Neighbors has developed the SUN Patch Program that can be implemented by any girl scout troop across the United States! While earning the SUN patch, Girl Scouts of all ages can learn about how solar works, discover solar energy at work around them, and become solar ambassadors to help grow solar in their communities.



Your troop can start earning the Solar United Neighbors SUN Patch by downloading our patch program PDF below. Reach out to us at to let us know that your troop will be working on the SUN patch! We can answer questions, offer ideas, and provide more ways for your troop to get involved with solar.
