What issue did your Take Action project address?
Helping Brownie leaders to plan "Try-It" patch activities.
What was your Take Action Project? Who did you involve in your project?
Each girl chose a "Try-It" patch out of the Brownie hand book and put together a kit with instructions on how to earn that patch. Some girl's kits included 4 activities and some included 2 activities and 2 field trips. Each girl figured out what to do and even used some of the activities and field trips that we went on as Brownies.
What were the results? How did it affect the community?
The results were AWESOME!! Our troop presented our project at a leader meeting and the kits are being housed at our local library. The girls chose to have the kits in the reference dept. which means you can't take them out of the library but you can make copies and take notes. It affected the community by encouraging those people who say "I'm not creative enough to be a leader" these kits have all the info for 5 "Try-It" patches and all the "creative" work is done for you!
What did you learn from the experience?
Each one of our girls said they learned that being a Girl Scout leader is a lot of work and they cam eto appreciate what we do for them a little bit more!
