Age-Level Girl Scout Leaders


Girl Scouts of the USA is transitioning from five (5) "age-level" program levels to six (6) "grade-level" program levels starting October 1, 2008.  The new program levels include: Daisy (grades K-1), Brownie (grades 2-3), Junior (grades 4-5), Cadettes (grades 6,7,8), Seniors (grades 9-10), and Ambassadors (grades 11-12). 

Girl Scouts of the USA has developed new program materials (Journeys) to go along with the new Girl Scout Leadership Development Experience that will be available for use across the levels starting October 1, 2008. 

The 2008-2009 Membership Year will be a transition year for moving from "age-level" to "grade-level".  

Thus, as Girl Scout Councils across the country transition from "age to grade" and from the old program materials to new, training requirements and materials will be change. However, during this transition year, leaders will still be required to take the Girl Scouts of Hawai'i Age-Level specific trainings.   (see Home-Study Courses below)


Program Level:  The program level materials below provide valuable information on age specific developmental characteristics, behavior management, troop government, girl/adult partnerships and much more for both new and returning leaders.  Currently, the Age-level trainings are only available in a Home-Study training.

1.  Home-Study:  The Age-Level Home-Study trainings below are available in a PDF format or via email or printed copy by contacting your island Service Center.  An examination with a passing score of 85% or better and the completion of an evaluation form must be received and reviewed by the Girl Scouts of Hawai'i to receive credit for any Home-Study training. 

Prerequisite:   Orientation for Girl Scout Volunteers and GS Basics.
