The first part of the National Program Portfolio are the Girl Scout Leadership Journeys. When a girl goes on a journey, she gets to explore leadership from all different angles.


The second part of the National Program Portfolio is The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting!  If girls want to earn badges to supplement their Journey — and you know there’s a great chance that most of them do — they will now have new ones to choose from.

Badges help girls develop specific skills in everything from photography to inventing to camping to geocaching – the list goes on and on! When girls build skills, they become more confident and develop a stronger sense of self.      
But the Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting has more than just exciting, new badges for every age level. Each guide contains:

»  A colorful, easy-to-use binder specially designed for girls at each level. The binder 
    comes chock full of essential information and badge activities—plus girls get to
    customize their own experience by choosing and adding in additional badge sets.

»  Legacy, Financial Literacy, and Cookie Business badge activities—or, for Girl Scout
    Daisies, petal and leaf activities.

»  A detailed diagram showing where girls place the badges, pins, or awards with pride
    on their vests or sashes.

​»  Ideas to help girls tie their badges right into their Journeys.

»  Vintage illustrations and quotes from Girl Scout history to help girls feel connected to
    the proud traditions of the past.

»  An awards log showing girls every award and badge available at their level, as well 
    as the entire badge program at every level, so girls can see how their skills will grow in 
    Girl Scouting.
