Start your new year with some new Girl Scout skills! Has your troop bridged to a new program level? Ready to take your girls tent camping? Are you looking for some new games to bring to your troop? or have you always wanted to know how to use a dutch oven? The Grow Your Knowledge Training Weekend is a partnership between the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta and Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia to bring a weekend full of leadership basics and fun enrichment classes to leaders in north Georgia. Come for just a class or two or stay for the whole weekend. New leaders are welcome and many classes are open to Girl Scout Seniors and Girl Scout Ambassadors.

The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting, the new program handbooks for all levels of Girl Scouts, will be out soon! But what’s in them? How do the new badges work? How can we incorporate them with the Journeys? This short (4-minute) video will answer these questions with a sneak peek at the new books! Take a look – and don’t forget you can still pre-order copies of the new Girl’s Guides to Girl Scouting at a discount through the Badge and Sash.

From GS Lesson to a Career

I found this interesting article on the Yahoo Group “GreenBloodNews” This business owner has been a long time Girl Scout, starting as a young girl.  She has a quilting business and I just read her new home page.  She credits learning how to sew to being a Girl Scout.  I love it when I read these kinds of stories.  It makes being a volunteer with girls worth every moment.  Here is a woman who started her career as a Girl Scout.  Check out her Web site.
