Programs promote skill-building, responsibility, and the development of strong leadership and decision-making skills. All program activities are grade-appropriate and based on the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, as well as on the Girl Scout Promise, Law and Mission.

GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR GIRL SCOUT JUNIORS -- LIMITED SPACE -- ACT QUICKLY!
With generous support from the Noyce Foundation, GSUSA has awarded GSNEO funding to implement the Engineer Your Journey initiative beginning this fall! Engineer Your Journey is a program collaboration between Techbridge and GSUSA aimed at engaging girls in STEM activities and inspiring their passion in technology, science and engineering. Engineer Your Journey combines Girls Go Techbridge activity kits with Girl Scout Journeys for a full leadership and engineering experience!
We are currently seeking interested Girl Scout Junior troops to help launch this initiative in northeast Ohio. Participants will have the benefit of troop leader training direct from Techbridge, support from GSNEO and GSUSA, and connection to other volunteers across the country engaged in the same program. Program materials and supplies will be provided for your troop. As a bonus, you will be able to share your experience direct with GSUSA and Techbridge … and help identify the best methods for engaging girls in science activities!
Troops selected to participate will be required to commit to all of the grant requirements, including program delivery, in-depth evaluation, research and observation, reporting and documentation. It’s demanding … but the experience will be invaluable!
Ready to jump on board?! Complete the Grant Funded Program Application and submit to GSNEO before October 15. Troops will be selected and notified on October 20. Troops should be ready to gear up for leader training the first weekend in November, and ready to launch activities with their troop immediately following training. Have questions? Contact Debbie Kroupa at email@example.com.
