Are there any Girl Scouts out there ready to YELL? We are looking for Girl Scouts ages 12 to 18 who would be interested in a year program called Youth Engaged in Learning and Leadership. After this 12-month program, girls will be able to demonstrate:
❖ Person leadership - encompasses a leader learning more about herself and developing life skills that strengthen self-image
❖ Organizational leadership - engages girls in practicing skills for decision-making
❖ Community leadership - focuses on girls organizing to create community change

During this year-long program, girls will have four 3-day retreats where they will learn about:
❖ self-esteem
❖ leadership
❖ goal setting
❖ decision making
❖ stress management and time management
❖ communication
❖ working with others
❖ conflict resolution
❖ engaging and empowering others
❖ cultural competence
❖ managing groups
❖ team building (we will be doing a ropes course)
❖ program planning and evaluation
❖ leadership and service learning
❖ leadership and youth-adult partnerships

To put what they’ve learned in to action, girls will then complete a final project Overall, our goal is for the girls to become empowered to be strong, confident leaders in their personal and professional lives in the future. Applications are due May 1 and girls accepted into the program will be notified by May 30.
