What Can a Girl Do? More Than Ever Before!
Did you know that there are many ways to enjoy Girl Scouting besides being in a troop? Fun, flexible programs that only meet 6 to 8 times over weeks or months with trained volunteers? We call these different ways to be a Girl Scout “Pathways” and the newest programs of the Girl Scouts of Silver Sage are called Series.
BFF (Be a Friend First)– This program for 6th – 8th graders teaches girls relational and leadership skills to short-circuit bullying behavior and to prevent it from happening in the first place. BFF uses role playing, creative writing, and discussion exercises throughwhich girls explore thorny issues like peer pressure, stereotyping, gossip,and cliques.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) – Designed for 5th- 8th graders who are not in a traditional troop, this group meets two Saturdays per month for five months. The program provides girls opportunities not only for real-life applications of science, technology, engineering and mathematic activities, but also to find their voice, challenge them, make friends, and have fun.
