Girl Scout Ambassador: Grades 11-12
Seeing the World, Changing the World!
As the end of high school gets closer and closer, the world for Girl Scout Seniors gets bigger and bigger! Young women are shown a world of opportunities in Girl Scouting through travel, service, events and activities that are designed to instill in you confidence and leadership as you enter adulthood. As busy as life can get for girls your age, there is still a space for Girl Scouts. Be a part of a group or participate in occasional events and clubs on your own. What you do is up to you!
And you're never too old to join! If you are not already a Girl Scout, you don't have to worry about what you've missed - just look forward to what you can experience NOW!
“The Girl Scouts have taught me many valuable life lessons and skills that I know will be beneficial as I enter into the next phase of my life.” – Kathryn
Girls now have three series of National Leadership Journeys to choose from! It's Your World - Change It, It's Your Planet - Love It, and It's Your Story - Tell It! On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do—whether it's performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking simple meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply—is aimed at giving them the benefits of the Girl Scout "Keys to Leadership": Discover, Connect, Take Action. Learn about all the Girl Scout Journeys here.
