Outcomes in the New Girl Scout Leadership Experience
You may be wondering: How do you know that girls are having an
effective leadership experience? Surely, discovering, connecting, and
taking action are different for Girl Scout Brownies and Girl Scout Seniors.
The signs are what let adults know if girls at each grade level are

signs on a journey—the signs that let you know you’re getting closer

Definitions of each outcome, and the signs for each, are organized
in user-friendly reference tables beginning on page 23. Each outcome
has its own reference table, as does each grade level. The tables
are organized exactly as they are listed in the diagram at right, under
the Discover, Connect, and Take Action keys to leadership.
