Leadership can take many forms in our public and private lives. We here at GSNYPENN want to make sure girls are comfortable taking the lead in every aspect of their professional and personal lives. We have several programs and opportunities coming up for Girl Scouts to learn about how they can be prepared to take the lead in unexpected situations.
Talk saves lives: Learn the risk factors and warning signs, how to talk directly with a person at risk, how to connect him/her with a mental health professional, and to dispel myths surrounding suicide and what we’ve learned from scientific research.
Safe dating workshop: What does a good relationship look like? It’s an important question, which this program is equipped to answer. We will help teens recognize the difference between caring, supportive relationships and controlling, manipulative, or abusive dating relationships. Girls will begin to explore what constitutes healthy relationships, provide them with the skills and resources to help themselves or friends in abusive dating relationships, and work on positive communication and conflict resolution.
Leaders in training: Spend this day at camp pushing the boundaries of your comfort zone, and growing your leader voice!
This program is all about exploring your own leadership style and personality, along with learning how to work with other leadership styles and personalities.We will play many challenging team-building games to exercise our teamwork skills, and explore our leadership styles and personality through individualized quizzes and whole group activities.
Become a Delegate: Get ready to ride the bus to Columbus Ohio to represent Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways at our national convention in October. We’re encouraging our most vocal Girl Scouts (14 years and older) to sign up to become delegates at this year’s National Convention. Deadline is midnight, February 3rd and you can fax or email in your registration.
