What is the Girl Scouts Leadership Experience?

Journeys and Guides

Volunteer Essentials answered a lot of the logistic questions I had–about registration, parent meeting, co-leaders, CPR certification, a troop bank account — which was great.

But in the week that’s passed since training — and as the date for my first troop meeting comes closer–I’m still not clear on the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. I don’t have a handle on the Journeys or the Girl Scouts Guides. So, I’ve searched the web for some more information. I’ve found this stuff helpful — and some of it fun. You may find it helpful too if you’re wondering about the GSLE. Take a look! Let me know what you think.

Experienced volunteers, tell me: What do you want to share about the Girl Scout Leadership Experience? How do you use the journeys and guides?

Girl Scouting is meeting girls’ definition of what it takes to be a leader with the New Girl Leadership Experience—a model that engages girls in discovering themselves, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place. This model is more inclusive and empowering of girls as the experiences are, as much as possible, girl led and encourage experiential and cooperative learning.
