Age Level Trainings (8-2013)*

These 3 hour trainings are designed to equip Girl Scouts leaders, both new and bridging, with the tools they need to facilitate each Program Level with their girls. Topics covered include developmental characteristics, group agreements, GSLE, National Program Portfolio including Journeys and Girls Guide, Community Service and Take Action, Traditions and Ceremonies, meeting and year planning, field trip safety and resources.
