How do journeys and badges work together?
The Skill Building badges and Leadership Journeys work together to add skill building to the leadership skills girls learn through the three keys of discover, connect and take action. Journeys are the only program resources that cover all 15 outcome indicators. Badges build specific skills and are primarily aimed at the discover—“girls develop a strong sense of self”—outcome indicator. National leadership journeys and The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting make up the program portfolio.
