New, valuable resources coming soon!
The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting and Skill-Building Badge Activity Sets are arriving in September 2011 and will be available for purchase from River Valley’s Shops this fall. These resources are the second components of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and they are topic-specific to skill building.
The Girl’s Guide for each program level—Daisy through Ambassador—has three main sections:
- Badges (topic areas: Legacy, Financial Literacy and Cookie Business)
- My Girl Scouts
Plus, there’s an Additional Award section for designated program levels.
Three Skill-Building Badge Activity Sets for Brownies through Seniors are sold separately. Each corresponds to one of the three journeys. Badges are intended to work with the national journeys to add topical skill building to the leadership abilities girls develop through the three keys: Discover, Connect, Take Action.
New badge titles and information on how to order these new resources will be available soon.
