On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do—whether it’s performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking simple meals, or learning to protect the planet’s water supply—is aimed at giving them the benefits of the Girl Scout “Keys to Leadership”: Discover, Connect, Take Action.
Here’s how they work:
A girl Discovers her special skills and talents, finds the confidence to set challenging goals for herself and strives to live by her values. This includes being proud of where she came from as well as where she’s going.
A girl Connects with others, which means she learns how to team up, solve conflicts, and have healthy relationships. These skills help her in school right now and prepare her for any career she chooses in the future.
A girl Takes Action and makes the world a better place, learning a lot about her community and the world along the way.
For all three leadership Journey series, the adult guide and the girl book have everything a volunteer needs to help inspire the girls and to assist them as they go. It’s all there for you!
Staying Healthy and Fit (Using the It’s Your Planet Love it! Journey Series)
Keeping Girls Healthy and Fit with ‘Healthy Habits’ Journey Booklets (Daisy, Brownie, Junior)
Whether they’re hiking, trying a new sport, or preparing tasty, nutritious snacks, Girl Scouts enjoy many fun ways to lead healthy lives. Health and fitness have been part of Girl Scouting since girls ran foot races in 1912!
Through the National Program Portfolio—Leadership Journeys and The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting for girls at all levels—girls develop leadership and build skills they can use now and in the future. Healthy living activities are woven throughout the Girl Scout program in varied ways to provide girls with choice and flexibility.
Girl Scouts of Central California South has a limited number of these Journeys booklets available. Please contact our Program Department at (800) 490-8653 ext 119 for more information.
