Program Aide Training for Leaders

When girls guide or teach others, they act as mentors. An exciting part of a Girl Scout’s development, teen mentoring is a win-win proposition! As teen mentors, Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors gain experience by sharing skills, testing knowledge and trying out new leadership roles. For the girls being mentored, it means a chance to be with and learn from teens – some of their favorite people.

Teens who earn Leader in Action and Program Aide mentoring awards are given a special opportunity to serve as champions for the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. As they serve in their roles, Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors can help grow awareness of all that Girl Scouting has to offer – Fun with a purpose: enjoyable and challenging activities that grow girls’ leadership in their daily lives and in the world.
