What is a Leadership Journey?
A leadership journey is the exciting new way of working with girls in a series of themed activities focused on building specific leadership skills. Journeys generally are designed in a six to eight session framework, and are fully customizable by girls and volunteers. In partnership with girls, volunteers can add outings, celebrations, badges, and explorations that suit the journey’s theme and the girls’ interests. Journeys can be stretched over a Girl Scout year or done over the course of a few weeks or months. While journeys offer plenty of choices for girls, the companion adult guides will provide the “roadmap” volunteers want.
A key part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, journeys are a coordinated series of activities grouped around a theme. Each journey is tied to Girl Scouts' 15 national outcomes for girls. These outcomes are integral to the three leadership keys, Discover, Connect, and Take Action.
Journey workshops are available to introduce Journey programs to prepare volunteers to offer the best Journey experience possible to their girls! Check the Calendar for Journey Workshops happening in your area.
