It's Your World—Change It!
Introducing the First Series of Journeys
What you will find at each level of this series?
you find in these new books? The Girl Scout Leadership Experience comes
to life for girls and the adults in the journeys. All the leadership
keys of Discover, Connect, and Take Action along with the Girl Scout
processes of Girl Led, Cooperative Learning, and Learning by Doing are
woven through each journey.
In a Girl Scout journey, awards link experiences, discussions and ideas
that girls explore together. As girls progress through the levels from
Daisy to Ambassador, their awards signify attaining new and higher
levels of knowledge and skills, and ultimately a deeper understanding
of what it means to be a leader who makes a difference in the world.
All the steps girls take toward earning awards are built right into
the journey. Adult guides for each level provide tips for coaching
girls along the way. With the Brownie Quest map, girls and adults track
award progress together; from Juniors on up, girls themselves track
their own progress. Another important tradition that helps girls
remember what awards stand for, is the ceremony. Journeys offer girls
ideas about meaningful ways to celebrate earning awards so that girls
always know why these accomplishments matter.
Awards are a vital part of the Girl Scout experience, and adults can
assist girls in finding the best way to achieve their goals. If a girl
misses a meeting related to earning an award, adults can find a way for
her to do something similar to what she missed to earn her award. All
girls may not have the exact same experience, but they can each take
away new insights, connections and a sense of accomplishment.
In several of the Girl Scout journeys there are some special items:
designated pages for copying; songs for the girls to sing; the LiA
award for Cadettes who help the Brownies in their Quest; and others.
Please look to the level section below to see what is offered.
