Leadership Journeys

Girl Scout Leadership Journeys are packed with everything you need for your leadership trip. Check out the Senior and Ambassador Journeys:

 
Senior Journeys
It's Your World - Change It!
Girltopia
Imagine a perfect world for girls, create that vision as an art project, and then take action to make it real. Leaders are, after all, visionaries!

It's Your Planet-Love It!
Sow What?
What makes a real happy meal? You'll find out as you explore food issues, scope out your own "food print," and even try out some tasty recipes. You may get some ideas for career choices, too.

It's Your Story-Tell It!
Mission: Sisterhood!
What does sisterhood mean to you-and how has it shaped your life so far? Find out how to ignite the energy of sisterhood to make a difference in the world.

Ambassador Journeys
It's Your World-Change It!
Your Voice, Your World
How often have you seen something that really needed to be changed and wondered, "Why isn't someone doing something about that?" This journey gives you a way to be that someone-an advocate with the power to start the first flutter of real and lasting change.

It's Your Planet-Love It!
Justice
Justice-for earth and all its inhabitants. We all know what it is. But why is it so hard to achieve? Maybe justice needs a brand-new equation-your equation. You'll find out how to add that up as you go on this Journey. Along the way, you'll also be networking and gathering new ideas for college and careers.

It's Your Story-Tell It!
Bliss: Live It! Give It!
Life is full of twists and turns, and your dreams can help you decide which paths you want to take. On this Journey, you'll take a close look at your dreams-now and for the future-and find out how to help others pursue theirs, too.
