Program Aide Training @ Ascension Lutheran Church
Oct 4 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

After this event, Cadettes interested in working with younger Girl Scouts will become a PA (Program Aide).  A PA uses her leadership skills to share her interests and experiences with younger girls in a council event, troop, group or camp setting.

When girls guide or teach others, they act as mentors. Teen mentoring is a win-win situation! You will deepen your understanding of what leadership development means and get excited about guiding others! You too can learn to be a champion mentor that delivers fun with purpose to younger Girl Scouts.

Cadette Troop 40182 would like to invite other Cadettes to join us for this training event. This event includes complete Program Aide training, fun games, snacks and getting to meet other Cadettes!

Reservation Deadline: 10/01/2013
