Brownie A World of Girls Journey Workshops 

Choose between two workshop experiences:

Brownie Storyteller Studio

What is our Girl Scout family story? Girls will learn the value of team collaboration as they empower themselves to design characters from one ‘heart’ trait they represent and write a story about contribution honoring each girl as a VALUABLE member of the team. This is a great class for team building and expanding our views of how we can all be inclusive storytellers.

Brownie Puppet Skit Kit

Explore the power of your VOICE as we trust the inner stories that come from our hearts. Girls will learn to listen for an idea, scribe a small script, value themselves, and using breath support, perform an original ‘puppet show’! Teams will share their stories with each other.

Brownie A World of Girls Journey Creative Expression Session 

The girls will learn how to listen for their inner ‘heart hero’ character and bring this to life through body, face, and voice. They become embodied ‘scribes’ as they author their own origin story about how they came to be the hero and what their world mission is! The group will then allow these heroes to all come alive onstage…creating a place and purpose for all. Girls will take home mini books to continue authoring the adventures of their ‘heart hero’.

Junior aMUSE Journey Creative Expression Session 

We are the storytellers and we are writing the story of strong female leadership! Girls will learn how to ‘see the story’ we are in, identify characters, and empower themselves to be the ‘creator’ of tomorrow. We will practice mindfulness as we begin to create our own characters and allow them to express themselves in a spoken piece (this could be a poem, song, monologue, speech, etc. They will share these pieces with each other in a collective performance. If scheduling this, it would be helpful to have a ‘prep session’ too! Let’s talk about how to make this really successful!!

Junior Agent of Change Creative Expression Session 

Girls will combine their many voices into ‘ONE VOICE’ as they create a live-action improvisation sketch comedy for the purpose of impact. We will work with a real-life issue facing this team and write a sketch highlighting this issue and offering awareness and/or problem solving insights. Troupes can record this for social media impact. Stories are powerful resources for world change and when creators work together to tell the truth-they become powerful advocates for social change….and girls are the best at this!!

Cadette MEdia Journey Creative Expression Session 

Who are you really? And who are you being molded to be by the world around you? This workshop encourages girls to deconstruct the ‘avatar’ they are supposed to be to ‘fit in’ and begin to feed the heart nature they truly are. We will learn about our ‘North Characters’ and begin to explore ways to develop them. With improvisation exercises we will begin to ‘take risks’ and let these original characters come to life!! This is a really fun workshop where we laugh our way to self acceptance.
