It's Your World North Dakota, Change It!

In North Dakota, The Jamestown Sun reports that a group of Jamestown Girl Scouts have completed an Agent of Change Journey and have now embarked on a project.

The Scouts spent the day at the YMCA discovering their personal attributes and learning about the importance of teamwork. They went on to learn about many historical women who have made an impact in the world. Girls, either individually or in groups, researched and presented different historical women role models.

The Agent of Change journey is filled with ceremonies and circles, real-life heroines, and the fashion-savvy spider named Dez. Along the way, girls learn how their own power combines into team power and then moves out to become community power, just as Dez weaves her web from the inside out. The journey’s centerpiece is a comic story of girl heroines who will inspire the Juniors as they take action to improve their own community.

In North Dakota, the Girl Scouts’ project was to spread kindness by doing random acts of kindness and asking the recipients to pay it forward. Each girl was expected to do 10 random acts of kindness and with each give the recipient a coupon asking them to pay it forward. In addition, the girls were to ask five trusted adults to join them in this mission by completing five more random acts of kindness.
