The Girl Scout Leadership Experience
All learning sessions offered by Girl Scouts Louisiana East define how the Girl Scout Program is the Girl Scout Leadership Experience which includes what we do with girls, how we do it and how girls will benefit. The program activities are organized around the Girl Scout three keys to leadership (discover, connect, take action) and are based on the values of the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
• Discover – the girls explore their values, skills and world.
• Connect – they engage in teaming up and relating with others in a multicultural world.
• Take Action – the girls engage in activities that make a difference in the world.
The processes of girl led, learning by doing, and cooperative learning are integrated into the activities (what girls do). The processes (how girls do it) create an environment of fun and friendship for girls, determine the quality of the experience, and make Girl Scouting unique, thus further enabling the development of leadership skills.
