The Girl Scout program is based on the Girl Scout Leadership
Experience (GSLE), in which girls Discover themselves, Connect with
others, and Take Action to make the world a better place—all within
the safety of an all-girl environment where girls take the lead, learn
by doing, and learn cooperatively.
If research or special equipment is needed, they’ll learn better by
doing that research themselves than by having you do the legwork and
report back to them.
Working in a partnership with girls so that their activities are
girl-led, allow them to learn by doing, and allow for cooperative
(group) learning; you’ll also partner with other volunteers and GSGATL
staff for support and guidance.
