It's Your Story—Tell It!

Introducing the Third Series of Journeys for Girl Scout Cadettes (Grades 6-8)


MEdiaCadettes look for the ME in media and learn how they can shape media—for themselves, their community and the world.

Stories are told everywhere and in all kinds of formats – in movies by big Hollywood studios, online by bloggers and through social networks, through the clothes chosen by stylists for a fashion spread in a magazine, through the photos chosen by a newspaper editor. MEdia helps girls think about who is responsible for telling all the stories they see around them and how can use their story to help "re-make" the forms of media they see around them.


Leadership Awards


Cadettes can take a leadership role with Brownies

LiA (Leader in Action) Award

Cadette Leadership In Action Award Patch (LiA)Girl Scout Cadettes have an opportunity to put their skills to work assisting Girl Scout Brownies on their Journey. Brownies (and their volunteers!) will appreciate having Cadettes along on the journey, and Cadettes will benefit from having the opportunity to have a position of responsibility. All the steps to the award are in the Cadette LiA letter found in the Adult Guide for both the Cadette and Brownie journeys. Your Girl Scout council is a great resource to identify Cadettes who might be interested in earning this award.
