Program Aide Training
Program aides are role models for younger Girl Scouts. This training gives them the opportunity to deepen their understanding of what leadership means to them and simultaneously to get excited about guiding younger girls to be leaders in their own lives and in the world.
Program aide training teaches Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors the skills they need to work with younger girls, peers, and adult volunteers. Program aides may put their skills into practice working with younger Girl Scouts at council programs, camps, and troop and Service Unit events. This training is a prerequisite for all Cadette Girl Scouts wishing to complete the Program Aide Award.
The training will last 3 and half hours total with a one 15-minute break. Please bring a snack and a refillable water bottle.
It is strongly recommended that girls complete the Leader in Action Award (LiA) prior to this training. This training is most useful during a girl’s seventh grade year.
