Discover + Connect + Take Action = Leadership
The new Girl Scout Leadership Experience identifies three "keys" to leadership:
Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.
Girls care about, inspire and learn with others locally and globally.
Girls act to make the world a better place.
All experiences in Girl Scouting incorporate the Discover, Connect and Take Action keys to leadership.
As girls take part in Girl Scouts, facilitators can review the outcomes, and the signs of those outcomes, to gauge the benefits of the experience. The signs of the outcomes reflect what girls think, say or do -- during and after the leadership experience -- and help adults determine the success of the experience.
The Outcomes Chart, organized by the three Leadership Keys, detail all 15 outcomes.
Girl Scouts in all pathways – series, events, camp, travel or troop -- who use the Girl Scout Journeys have the opportunity to tie their leadership experiences to their state’s educational curriculum standards.
