Good luck. The planned sessions in the leader guide and the page of goals for earning the awards really simplify the journey process for me. I'll be interested how it goes for you.

Keep Sparking!

I'll have to look at the planned sessions. Right now I feel overwhelmed. I have every single Journey for each level. I'm still not real sure about them myself. It's going to take some serious investigation. Maybe tonight I'll start with the leader guide and see where that takes me.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

I will be interested in your results. I have a brownie troop with a single junior. I just worked on a method to combine the two its your story journeys into a single journey so they can all earn their respective awards. I have an outline, but I also have a lot of discussion, especially at the first meeting and then shorter times at the other meetings, for the girls to share ideas in the way they want to direct the journey. I am really working on making this girl led, so only had to create an outline and the preplanning items I might need based on that outline.

I think there are lots of leaders looking for direction with the journeys. I am a trainer for our council and until last month had never made the direct connection between the journeys and the planned sessions in the leader guide. It opened a whole new world to me and I am ready to try the journey process again. I had given up last year and only worked on badges out of the girl guide.

Good luck!

Keep Sparking!

I am going to start planning an informational presentation on Journeys. I am looking for ideas on how you did some of the steps that are not listed in the book.

My daughter did Girltopia: Along the lines of womens rights and creativity.
She took a jewelry class in school
She went to a Day of the Dead presentation at an art museum
She went to see the Nutcracker
She read a book about a teen girl sold into slavery
She volunteered at a couple GS events
She donated toiletries to a women's shelter
In the book it suggested watching John Q - that was the only written suggestion that she took and did out of the book. The rest were other ideas that built on the concept of the Journey.

So I'm looking for creative ideas for when the book doesn't work, or you want to think outside the box.

Or any ideas or suggestions that are important. I don't want leaders to keep thinking it's too much like homework. I want to help change that attitude to think Journeys are pretty easy and flexible. The girls never even have to see the book to earn it.

Thanks Kris
