Take Action in Your Community!

By: Kim Dunne, Media Manager

its your worldAre you taking action in your community to help make the world a better place? Maybe you’re looking for some ideas on how your girls can make a positive impact on the community.

All experiences girls have in Girl Scouting incorporate the three keys to leadership: Discovery, Connect, and Take Action. Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience girls Discover what their interests are; Connect with others in their community with the same interests as them; and then Take Action to help make the world a better place. When girls Take Action in their communities, not only are they making the world a better place, but they can gain skills in one or more of our outcomes, such as:

  • Girls can identify community needs.
  • Girls are resourceful problem solvers.
  • Girls advocate for themselves and others, locally and globally.
  • Girls educate and inspire others to act.
  • Girls feel empowered to make a difference in the world.

If you’re looking for ideas to take action in your community – consider one of these projects to get you started!

If you are doing any Take Action projects with your troops – share them with us! We’d love to hear about them and you might inspire others to do similar projects!
