Pathway FAQs

Thursday, 22 August 2013 03:09
Category: Pathways
Written by Hits: 1325

Can members participate in more than one pathway?

Absolutely! Girls are encouraged to build their own leadership experience by choosing any and all pathways that interest them.  All girls are welcome to all pathways.

 

How do individually registered girls fit into the proposed framework?

Individually-registered girls (girls who are not members of troops) and adults can participate in any pathway. When a girl or adult joins the organization, she or he becomes a Girl Scout member. All members can choose any one, all, or some of the pathways to participate in within a single year.

 

What is the difference between the Events Pathway and recruitment events?

All programs delivered in the Events Pathway incorporate the Discover-Connect-Take Action keys to leadership and the girl-led, learning by doing, and cooperative learning processes. To join the Events Pathway, all girls must be registered. The Events Pathway is a core Girl Scout experience where the intent of participation is in multiple events throughout the year. To participate in recruitment events, membership is not required. The intent of a recruitment event is to demonstrate the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to potential members. Potential members will learn about the ways to participate in Girl Scouts at recruitment events.

 

Are girls who only participate in short-term pathways considered "real" Girl Scouts?

Yes! No matter which pathway a girl chooses, she is a Girl Scout. According to the Blue Book of Basic Documents 2006, the only requirements for membership are that girls are in grades Kindergarten–12, accept the Promise and Law, and pay annual membership dues.  Once they have become Girl Scouts, it's up to girls how they want to participate.

 

How will outcomes differ between pathways?

The goal of measuring outcomes is to give us the ability to understand the effect that the Girl Scout Leadership experience has on girls. The longer a girl participates in Girl Scouting, the greater the effect the outcomes will have on her.

 

Participating in Product Sales Program Activities

All girl members in any pathway may participate in council-sponsored product sales program activities, under volunteer supervision. GSGST provides training on the procedures to follow during each sale through a cascading staff and volunteer effort. The council also establishes guidelines and procedures for conducting the sale and determines how the proceeds and recognition system will be managed for girls in each pathway.
