You may be wondering: How do you know girls are having an effective leadership experience? Surely discovering, connecting and taking action aren’t the same for all girls!
The signs are what let adults know if girls at each grade level are achieving leadership skills. Checking the outcomes is like noting road signs on a journey – the signs that let you know you’re getting closer to your destination.
