Girl Scouts Needed for Challenge & Change Service Projects
Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois has selected three Challenge and Change projects. Each project will be funded up to $5000 by the USDA and supported by their local communities and Girl Scouts like you!
Challenge and Change is a curriculum that aligns with the Girl Scout Leadership Development Program, where girls discover their personal best, connect with others in an increasingly diverse world, and take action to solve problems and improve their rural communities. The Challenge and Change curriculum draws on extensive research in youth development, leadership and social entrepreneurship.
Challenge and Changes teaches girls skills to identify community problems, recognize and build on local assets, and design a sustainable solution and action plan for the rural communities that they live in. After the training, girls recruit a community action team—including an adult who serves as their community champion—to turn their good idea into a sustainable, long-term project.
