Every Junior Girl Scout belongs to a troop that is guided by leaders who are taught by certified trainers. Leaders partner with girls as they explore new opportunities, learn decision-making skills, and gain the confidence to be trailblazers in service to their communities.
Beginning with the Junior level, girls really start to bond together as a unit,. They begin taking on more responsibility for themselves and others.
