Girltopia Journey Series for Seniors

Girl Scout Seniors know the world is not ideal. This journey is their chance to imagine a perfect world—for girls. They’re invited to create their vision as an art project—in any medium they choose. Then they’ll take action to make their vision a reality. Leaders, after all, are visionaries! Completing a Senior Journey is a prerequisite for the Gold Award. An essential component of a Take Action Project is that the girls take it out to the community. The final steps of the Sisterhood Award Take Action project will be completed outside the workshop series.
