Girls have three different leadership journeys that they can choose from. These journeys have corresponding workbooks divided by grade level and are created specifically for girls.
For all three leadership Journey series, the adult guide and the girl book have everything a volunteer needs to help inspire the girls and to assist them as they go. It's all there for you!
On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do—whether it's performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking simple meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply—is aimed at giving them the benefits of the Girl Scout "Keys to Leadership": Discover, Connect, Take Action.
Here's how they work:
A girl Discovers her special skills and talents, finds the confidence to set challenging goals for herself and strives to live by her values. This includes being proud of where she came from as well as where she's going.
A girl Connects with others, which means she learns how to team up, solve conflicts, and have healthy relationships. These skills help her in school right now and prepare her for any career she chooses in the future.
A girl Takes Action and makes the world a better place, learning a lot about her community and the world along the way.
The Girl Scout Leadership Experience comes to life for girls and the adults in the journeys. All the leadership keys of Discover, Connect, and Take Action along with the Girl Scout processes of Girl Led, Cooperative Learning, and Learning by Doing are woven through each journey.
