Introducing the First Series of Journeys for Girl Scout Seniors (Grades 9-10)
Girl Scout Seniors know the world is not ideal. This journey is their chance to imagine a perfect world—for girls. They’re invited to create their vision as an art project—in any medium they choose. Then they’ll take action to make their vision a reality. Leaders, after all, are visionaries!
GIRLtopia invites girls to consider how the world is far from perfect for girls around the world. As girls take in this reality, they are invited to envision an ideal world—a society that consistently respects their needs, values and interests. In GIRLtopia, girls have the option of earning a major award, an important step on the Girl Scout leadership ladder:
The Senior Visionary Award – To earn the award, girls complete 3 steps:
Create It – an artistic representation of an ideal world to share with others;
Guide It – lead a discussion or group activity that engages other girls in thinking about visionary leadership; and
Change It – complete a Take Action Project that moves the world (or a community) one step closer to ideal.
