Program Aide Training @ United Christian Church
Sep 21 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

Are you a Girl Scout Cadette interested in working with younger Girl Scouts?  A PA is a girl who uses leadership skills to share her interests and experiences with younger girls in a 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.

This training serves as a requirement for the Program Aide Award and is a prerequisite for the Outdoor Leadership Training for Older Girls, which is held in May and is required for you to be a Program Aide at Summer Camp.
