Learn and Take Action
Leaders, is your troop ready to complete a journey, this spring or next fall? They often cover topics that you’re not familiar with and need girls to “dive deeper” in progression for both girl leadership and taking action. The environment-focused journeys are now revised as “hybrids” that start with troop or SU contact and then clarify troop schedule, troop interests, balance of individual and troop activities, facilitation by other older girls in some virtual meetings, and troop-scheduled Take Action.
Your troop can get a “fast” journey with some community partners ($30 for three hours?). But they short-cut the girls’ experiences to share and learn from each other, and to build skills for the silver and gold award steps.
Sign up for a journey with your troop or several troops? Contact Anne Fege at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Since April 2020, more than 300 Cadettes, 130 Seniors, and 20 Ambassadors completed these journeys. The journeys have online and outdoor activities, four weekly virtual meetings, focus on critical thinking and leadership, and feature Take Action projects. Older girls are learning advocacy skills crucial to earning the Silver and Gold Award, and meeting women professionals working in the environmental field.
