Every Journey Needs a Great Guide...

...and every girl deserves her own!

The Girl Scout National Program Portfolio has two main parts - the National Leadership Journeys and The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting.

Girl's guide

The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting is an all-in-one handbook and badge program that complements Girl Scout Leadership Journeys. 

The guide introduces girls to the Girl Scout experience at every level. It's an updated badge program focused on life skills for 21st century girls. It's a scrapbook and journal so that every girl can make every experience uniquely her own. And it's designed to work with Girl Scout Leadership Journeys to form the national leadership program for girls. Check out this additional resource on the Girl's Guide: Girl's Guide Summary and Messages to Share.


Every 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 Leadership Experience.
