Today’s busy Girl Scout volunteers have been asking for easy ways to guide girls through the wealth of experiences that Girl Scouting offers. Those requests were answered with Leadership Journeys for each grade level. Easy-to-use companion adult guides accompany each leadership journey and are designed to help volunteers guide girls easily through fun and meaningful experiences. The adult guides will also help volunteers to understand and observe the impact of the program on girls’ lives. Click on the grade level in the navigation to preview the Journey resources that are available.
Framework for Success
The journey will be much more fun and relevant as girls make it their own! Journeys provide sample sessions to give girls and volunteers ideas about sequencing experiences, discussions and earning awards so that the whole journey feels like one big adventure.

A key part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is the leadership journey, a coordinated series of activities grouped around a theme. Each journey is tied to some of Girl Scouts' 15 national outcomes for girls, as defined in the Girl Scout Leadership Model. These outcomes are integral to the three leadership keys, Discover, Connect, and Take Action.
