Silver Award Boot Camp!


As you may know, one of the best parts about being a Cadette Girl Scout is earning a Silver Award!  You get to look at your community through the lens of leadership, and use your resources to make an empowered change on an issue that you are passionate about.  So what better way to earn this prestigious award than with other likeminded leaders?


This month, fourteen of our go-getter Cadettes signed up for the EPIC 5 day adventure at Silver Award Boot Camp!  The girls spent the first few days earning the MEdia Journey; They analyzed how young girls and women are represented in today’s media, and discussed the ways in which the media can be a help AND a hindrance to our daily lives.  After their research, the girls felt empowered to complete a Take Action Project by sharing their newfound awareness with younger girls.  Our incredible Cadettes facilitated 2 one hour Positive Body Image workshops for Brownies and Juniors and led a series of inspiring activities with the girls.  The great thing about Take Action Projects is that not only are you doing something great for others in your community- but you are also learning about yourself in the process!


The last few days of camp were spent conjuring up powerful project ideas that addressed pressing needs in the Tucson community.  One group that was passionate about Animal Welfare, dedicated their project to advocating  for a local No-kill Dog Shelter.  Another group dedicated theirs to planting organic gardens in local homeless shelters, and teaching the residents to maintain and utilize the garden for long-term use.  All of the projects were meaningful, sustainable global, and measurable and we can’t wait to witness the impact they make!


So, if YOU are looking to make a global change in your local community, earn your Silver Award!  The world needs your radiant light and leadership!
