Girl Scouts helps girls discover their talents and strengths, connect with others, and take action in their communities. Trained, carring adult volunteers provide opportunities for girls to practice decision-making skills, develop healthy and positive self-esteem, and pursue interests in a supportive nurturing all-girl environment. Girls and adults plan together, as partners, to decide what activities they will do.
Girl Scout Juniors (grades 4-5) earn badges, hike and camp, participate in the cookie program, and much more. They have tons of fun and make new friends that will last a lifetime! A Girl Scout Junior's leadership journey begins with her choice of Girl Scouting's three journey series: It's Your World - Change It!, It's Your Planet - Love It! and It's Your Story - Tell It!
Agent of Change
Power! In this journey, there's a whole spiral of it waiting for Girl Scout Juniors. This powerful journey is filled with ceremonies and circles, real-life heroines and special new characters, including the fashion-savvy spider named Dez. Along the way, girls learn how their own power combines into team power and then moves out to become community power.
Girl Scout Juniors become leaders who energize, investigate, and innovate as they explore their own energy, the energy of their places and spaces, and the energy of getting from here to there. Along the way, Dez, the fashionista spider, learns right along with girls. Girl Scout Juniors will also meet energizing artists, cooks, engineers, and architects as they Get Moving to get others moving, too.
Whether they want to fly a plane, lead a rock band or win a gold medal, aMUSE helps Girl Scout Juniors take center stage and try out more roles than they ever thought possible, with a little help from Dez and the Muses. As they find out there is more to their story, girls may feel stronger, walk taller and gain confidence!
