Find the path that's right for you

Pathways are flexible and nationally consistent ways for girls and adults to participate in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

 When a girl or an adult joins the organization, she or he becomes a Girl Scout member. Girls can choose any one, all, or some of these pathways -- camp, events, series, travel, troops, and virtual, within a single school year.

The flexibility of Pathways will allow adults to participate in Girl Scouting based on their lifestyle and availability -- whether the adult prefers to partner directly with girls throughout a membership year, participate for only a few weeks or months, or work with other adults in a variety of roles.

What does Pathways mean for girls and adults everywhere?

             •    Membership flexibility and participation options

    Increased volunteer retention and recruitment -- more adults to serve and support more girl members

    Increased flexibility encourages more girls to join Girl Scouting

    Increased interest from adults who desire to provide direct service to girls through more short term volunteer opportunities

    Current girl and adult members can remain with the organization longer because of the flexible ways to join and volunteer

Teen Mentoring Awards

When Girl Scouts guide younger girls or teach them something that they know, they are acting as a mentor. There are many opportunities for Girl Scout Cadettes, Senors and Ambassadors to help younger Girl Scouts by sharing their skills, passion and experience.

Cadette Program Aide

The Cadette Program Aide training is designed to foster the development of basic leadership skills and gives girls a basis for working with younger girls. Topics include basic understanding of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, Journey program, activity ideas and how to create high quality experience. Additionally, participants will learn about the developmental characteristics of younger girls, group dynamics and safety.

Requirements to earn the Cadette Program Aide Award:

  • Earn a Leader in Action (LiA) award
  • Complete council-designed leadership training. Part of the leadership course training will involve learning to work with children, and gaining a deeper understanding of a specialty such as science, art, the outdoors, or adapting activities for girls with disabilities.
  • Work directly with younger girls over six activity sessions. This might be assisting girls on Journey activities (in addition to what you did for your Lia), badge activities, or other sessions. Or work with a group, at a meeting, day camp, or during a special council event.

Leader in Action

A Leader in Action (LiA) award can be earned by assisting a Girl Scout Brownie group on any of their National Leadership Journeys. There are three different LiA awards, one for each of the Journey series: It’s Your World -- Change It!, It’s Your Planet -- Love It!, and It’s Your Story --Tell It!
To earn an LiA Award, complete the following steps:

  • Share organization skills.
  • Share special talents.
  • Teach Brownies something important from their journey.
  • Reflect on the experience.

Counselor-in-Training I 

Counselor-in-Training I (CIT’s) mentor younger girls in a camp setting as skills are built toward becoming a camp counselor.
To earn this award complete the following steps:

  • Complete a council-designed leadership training course on outdoor experiences.
  • Work with younger girls over the course of a camp session.

Counselor-in-Training II

Girl Scout Seniors or Ambassadors interested in mentoring younger girls in a specific area of camp, as they build skills towards becoming camp counselors should consider pursuing this award.

To earn this award complete the following steps:

  • Earn the Counselor-in-Training I Award.
  • Work with younger girls over the course of at least one camp session while focused on increasing skills in one specific area-such as riding instruction, lifeguarding or the arts.


The newly named Volunteer-inTraining award replaces the Leader in Training award and is earned by Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors who would like to mentor a Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, Junior or Cadette group outside of the camp experience.

To earn this award complete the following steps:

  • Completed ninth grade.
  • Design and implement a project that spans over a three-to-six month period.
  • Find a mentor volunteer who is currently volunteering with a Girl Scout troop or group.
  • Complete the council-designed leadership course.
  • Create and implement a thoughtful program based on a Journey or badge that lasts over four or more sessions.
  • Be responsible for designing, planning, and evaluating the activities.
