A key part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is the leadership journey, a coordinated series of activities grouped around a theme. Each journey is tied to some of Girl Scouts' 15 national outcomes for girls. These outcomes are integral to the three leadership keys: Discover, Connect, and Take Action.
Journeys provide "sample sessions" to give girls and volunteers ideas about sequencing experiences, discussions, and earning awards so that the "whole" feels like one big adventure. The journey will be much more fun and relevant as girls make it their own!
Coming Soon! Check out a sneak preview of each grade level journey from GSUSA!
In a Girl Scout journey, awards link experiences, discussions and ideas that girls explore together. As girls progress through the grade levels from Daisy to Ambassador, their awards signify attaining new and higher levels of knowledge and skills, and ultimately a deeper understanding of what it means to be a leader who makes a difference in the world.
All the steps girls take toward earning awards are built right into the journey. Adult guides for each level provide tips for coaching girls along the way. Journeys offer girls ideas about meaningful ways to celebrate earning awards so that girls always know why these accomplishments matter.
