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!
•Seniors investigate the food network (no not cable TV—the real one that gets each piece of food to the table).
•As they ponder the dirt on land use around the world (corn's a big issue!), girls get down to the science and roots of complex and global food issues.
•Girls plan and conduct a local "food forage" to scope out their "food print" choices, and talk to scientists, local growers, and business owners—and even global hunger experts.
•Using what they learn, girls consider their "leader prints" as they decide who and what they can cultivate en route to a Take Action Project that positively impacts their food network.
•Along the way, Seniors take time to enjoy a "truly happy meal" together, experiment with new recipes, and try out being "locavores" who know how to savor local bounty.
•So what about career choices and networking? Sew what about sewing? Seniors have a chance to try these on, too!
•When they add Harvest, a prestigious new leadership award to their collection, Girl Scout Seniors will truly be proud of what they have sown on Earth!
When it comes to sisterhood, what girls start can spiral outward and change the world. Through Mission: Sisterhood! girls see the stories of sisterhood all around them and grow as leaders by widening their networks and broadening their world.
