Girl Scouts helps girls discover their talents and strengths, connect with others, and take action in their communities. Trained, carring adult volunteers provide opportunities for girls to practice decision-making skills, develop healthy and positive self-esteem, and pursue interests in a supportive nurturing all-girl environment. Girls and adults plan together, as partners, to decide what activities they will do.

Girl Scout Cadettes (grades 6-8) earn badges, hike and camp, participate in the cookie program, and much more. They have tons of fun and make new friends that will last a lifetime! A Girl Scout Cadette's leadership journey begins with her choice of Girl Scouting's three journey series: It's Your World - Change It!, It's Your Planet - Love It! and It's Your Story - Tell It!

Breathe
Air is everywhere in this journey for Girl Scout Cadettes. As the girls explore the air all around them, they'll learn a lot of air-clearing strategies, including how to turn down the volume! That means they'll be improving their personal air space - and finding the breathing room so necessary to be leaders who make the most of their special flair! Girl Scout Cadettes will also meet scientists, engineers, writers, and artists - all of them working for Earth's air!

The Girl Scout program can change the way girls see the world and their place in it. Girls learn the importance of personal responsibility, the value of goal setting, the spirit of teamwork, and the thrill of accomplishment. The Girl Scout program is based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law, the Three Keys to leadership of discover, connect and take action, and the Three Processes of girl-led, learn by doing, and cooperative learning.

Through a working partnership with adult leaders and advisors, Girl Scouts encourages girls to develop qualities of responsible citizenship, cross-cultural understanding, service to the community and to her own religion, as well as positive interaction with her family and friends. These are used to lay a foundation for responsible action as women. Girl Scout program is carried out in many different settings in the troop, in the community, in a wide variety of outdoor settings, through service unit events, council sponsored programs, and national and international trips.

 

In Motion Program Guide

Council programs provide an opportunity for girls to experience Girl Scouting beyond the troop and with any of the flexible pathways. By developing collaborations with local community resources, the council can provide programs that often are not available at the troop or service unit level. Girls come together from all areas of the council to enjoy the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. The In Motion Program Guide has three editions published each year (Fall/Winter, Winter/Spring, and Summer), and gives details of the many program opportunities and events offered.

Brownie Quest
This quest has second and third graders traveling along two colorful trails, one they can enjoy on their own and one they explore with their Girl Scout group. Along the quest, Girl Scout Brownies will meet three new friends and a bright and shining elf - in a Brownie story meant to inspire their own take action projects.

 

 
WOW! Wonders of Water
This journey for Girl Scout Brownies follows friends Alejandra, Campbell, Jamila, and Brownie Elf as they enjoy some amazing wonders of water. Girls will learn about the endless water cycle and enjoy making their own rainbows as they explore our precious resource of water. They'll meet inspiring women working for water, learn Girl Scout history, and, as a team, come to understand that WOW also stands for Ways of Working. Girl Scout Brownies reach out to their community as they advocate for other people to get involved in protecting water, too!

 

 

A World of Girls
Stories are all around us – in movies, in books, in television shows, advertisements, on the news and even on cereal boxes. This journey helps engage Girl Scout Brownies in the wider world of storytelling in a way that gets them looking for clues to help make the world a better place. With some help from Brownie Elf along the way, girls see how they can create positive change in the world - change that affects girls.
