Planning My Experience

Guiding Girls on Their Girl Scout Journey.

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

Complemented by the Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scout programs, including travel, and Girl Scout Girl Awards, the National Program Portfolio is designed to help girls develop as leaders and build confidence by learning new skills. It also ensures that Girl Scouts at every level are sharing a powerful, national experience—girls together changing the world!

The Leadership Journeys are a key component of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE).
Unlocking the potential of Journeys means that everyone will have a positive experience and together, will discover, connect and take action! Find out more about Journeys by using these maps, taking a free webinar or visiting our Journeys pages.

If you’re working with Daisies, Brownies or Juniors and want more guidelines for your troop activities and Leadership Journeys, please use these Quick Start materials.
