The Girl Scout Leadership Experience comes to life for girls and 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 this journey for kindergartners and first-graders, the flower friends take a cross-country road trip that invites Daisies to explore what sprouts up across the country as they learn how to protect what needs protecting! As Lupe and her flower friends zip along in Lupe’s petal-powered car, the Daisies witness some of the wonders and woes of nature and are on their way to earning their Clover (use resources wisely!), Blue Bucket and Firefly awards.
The Brownie friends explore the Wonders of Water and Ways of Working as a team. Brownie ELF is back for the Very Wet Elf Adventure. In real life, the Brownies might just hold their own “Green Tea for the Blue Planet "as they earn their Love, Save, Share and Wow awards.
Girls explore the energy inside them, the energy used in their places and spaces and the energy of getting themselves from here to there. A new comic story, “¡Vamos Ya!” will inspire the action (walking school bus, anyone?) and Dez, the fashionista spider, is back with some wit as she tries to figure out life “off the grid.” Along the way, Juniors can earn Energize, Investigate and Innovate awards!
Cadettes engage all five senses as they clear the air-their own and Earth’s. While measuring air quality and acting to improve it, girls also find their flair, think about “Hair,” and perhaps try an éclair. From cigarette smoking to deforestation, they get an aerial view of many issues! As girls become more Aware, they Alert others and then Affirm their impact as they add these uplifting awards to their collection.
Girls investigate the food network. (No, not cable – the real one that gets each piece of food to the table.) As they ponder the ‘dirt’ on land use around the world (corn’s a big issue!), girls think about who and what they can cultivate en route to earning the Harvest Award.
Through the ages and across the world, people have yearned for justice. And yet, injustice – for Earth and all its inhabitants – continues to elude us. As Ambassadors do the math and create their own unique equation for justice, they will find that they are also networking and gathering ideas for college and careers. Ultimately, they can add the Sage Award to their list of accomplishments.
