It's Your World—Change It!

Introducing the First Series of Journeys for Girl Scout Ambassadors (Grades 11-12)

Your Voice, Your World: The Power of AdvocacyYour Voice, Your World: The Power of Advocacy

How often have you seen something that really needed to be changed and wondered, "Why isn’t someone doing something about that?" This journey gives Girl Scout Ambassadors a way to be that someone—an advocate with the power to start the first flutter of real and lasting change. While creating their own "butterfly effect," they'll gain an array of skills—such as networking, planning and learning to speak up for what they believe—that will benefit them as they prepare for life beyond high school.


Journey Awards

This journey offers Ambassadors the tools to dig for the root of an issue they deeply care about and then to explore possible solutions. As they advocate for a solution, girls at the highest level of Girl Scouts will develop confidence and valuable leadership skills—problem-solving, research, networking, persuasive speaking and consensus-building. These skills are a strong foundation for girls to be leaders who speak up for what they believe in life now—and into the future!


Corrections - On page 38 of the adult guide (first edition Aug. 2008) under the heading Advocacy vs. Service – The last line of the first paragraph refers them to the "Service, Action, and Advocacy" section on page 27 of the girl book. That section is found on page 29 of the girl book. On page 39 of the adult guide (first edition Aug. 2008) under the heading Make It Yours – The first sentence refers them to the "Make It Yours" reflection on page 22 and "reprints" it below the paragraph. This should read page 25 of the girl book.
