Ongoing Patch Programs
Wells Fargo Hands On Banking Program
GSAK has teamed with Wells Fargo to provide real-life money-management experience for girls of all ages.

Natural Resources Patch Series
Along with Alaska Resource Education (ARE), GSAK has developed four new patches, the first of their kind in the nation: energy, minerals, forestry, and natural resources. The Natural Resource Patch Series is designed to teach girls about the resources and diversity of our state and its industries. ARE has adapted their most popular and innovative lessons for the patch requirements to get girls engaged in Alaska’s natural resources and the important role they play in our state.

Girls Love Anchorage Centennial Patch Program
Anchorage’s 100th anniversary gives GSAK the opportunity to strengthen our long tradition of engaging girls in the culture, history, and opportunities of the Anchorage community. Celebrate this significant milestone by participating in activities and events around our community. Girls earn two passport stickers for each of the following categories: arts and culture, history, science and innovation, outdoor fun and recreation, transportation, wildlife and nature, and community involvement. Once the passport book is filled with all 14 stickers, girls earn our “Girls Love Anchorage” patch!
