Encourage Girls to Lead with the Ban Bossy program materials

Ban Bossy is a new program from Girl Scouts and LeanIn.org that encourages girls to BanBossy-Patchaspire to be leaders and to learn leadership skills.  If you are looking for some programming ideas for your troop, the Ban Bossy site has suggested activities for girls aged 7 and up.  For example, the “G.I.R.L.” decision making process helps girls learn effective decision making skills and there is another activity that gives girls an opportunity to practice using “I-Statements,” a great tool for resolving conflicts.

Check out the “For Troop Leaders” section of the website http://www.banbossy.com to download the “Leadership Tips for Troop Leaders” guide, which includes information about how to lead these, and other, activities.
