In the Junior journey, aMUSE, from It’s Your Story – Tell It! girls read inspiring stories of real women who have taken on many different roles. The women they meet took the lead in their own lives and then became leaders in the office, in the kitchen, and in government! Girls also think about the roles they currently play in life and the roles of the women and girls around them. Girls find out about the roles women play in real life and in media, they find out about the limitless possibilities available to them, and also learn about stereotypes. Juniors learn to bust stereotypes and try on even more roles! Juniors will delight as they find out how fun sharing stories through different methods like dance, music or drama can be. There is also a world of possibilities when considering the link this theme has to theater. Girls will have their choice of many acting-themed activities and games, like Take the Stage, a charades-like game that has them jump into the “spotlight” to act out a role while their sister Girl Scouts guess what role she is playing!
The theme of the third leadership journey series, It’s Your Story – Tell It! is storytelling. Stories teach girls about themselves and the world in a fun, interactive way. As you know, Girl Scouts of the USA and Dove®, the leading personal care brand, partner to deliver Girl Scout leadership and self-esteem programming to millions of girls nationwide and abroad with the latest Girl Scout leadership journey It's Your Story-Tell It!. It's Your Story-Tell It! uses a storytelling theme in a fun and relevant way for girls to better understand themselves and their potential.
It's Your Story-Tell It! also has a very comprehensive website that allows you to get involved in a number of awesome activities! It has quizzes and games, video examples and templates plus a whole lot more! I've actually taken some of the quizzes and learned quite a bit.
Make sure you get a set of the latest Girl Scout leadership journey It's Your Story-Tell It! and ask your girls how they want to be creative this summer!
