It's Your World—Change It!

Introducing the First Series of Journeys

What you will find at each level of this series?

What will you find in these new books? The Girl Scout Leadership Experience comes to life for girls and the adults in the journeys. All the leadership keys of Discover, Connect, and Take Action along with the Girl Scout processes of Girl Led, Cooperative Learning, and Learning by Doing are woven through each journey.

Journey Awards

In a Girl Scout journey, awards link experiences, discussions and ideas that girls explore together. As girls progress through the levels from Daisy to Ambassador, their awards signify attaining new and higher levels of knowledge and skills, and ultimately a deeper understanding of what it means to be a leader who makes a difference in the world.

All the steps girls take toward earning awards are built right into the journey. Adult guides for each level provide tips for coaching girls along the way. With the Brownie Quest map, girls and adults track award progress together; from Juniors on up, girls themselves track their own progress. Another important tradition that helps girls remember what awards stand for, is the ceremony. Journeys offer girls ideas about meaningful ways to celebrate earning awards so that girls always know why these accomplishments matter.

Awards are a vital part of the Girl Scout experience, and adults can assist girls in finding the best way to achieve their goals. If a girl misses a meeting related to earning an award, adults can find a way for her to do something similar to what she missed to earn her award. All girls may not have the exact same experience, but they can each take away new insights, connections and a sense of accomplishment.

Journey Support In several of the Girl Scout journeys there are some special items: designated pages for copying; songs for the girls to sing; the LiA award for Cadettes who help the Brownies in their Quest; and others. Please look to the level section below to see what is offered.
