gsLead: Leadership Development Cohort
Grades 8 –12: Join us for a new leadership development program designed specifically for 8th - 12th grade Girl Scouts who want to explore and expand their leadership skills. Throughout this six-part series, participants will identify their strengths, develop future goals, hear from women leaders in a variety of fields, and grow in a supportive community of other Girl Scouts. These sessions will take us to various exciting locations for hands-on activities, from Girl Scout camp to the Minnesota History Center to a women-led law firm in downtown Minneapolis.
By the end of the gsLead series, you will feel prepared to lead in a variety of situations and be confident in your own identity as a leader. Participants who complete at least 5 of the 6 gsLead sessions will receive a patch and certificate at the closing celebration.
