While badges show the world you’ve learned new skills, Journey awards show you know how to apply them. During a Journey, Girl Scouts do hands-on activities, connect with experts, and take the lead on a Take Action project with their community.
Journeys awards are usually earned through multi-session troop activities. Through our council-led Journey Express Days, Girl Scouts of Greater New York offers our members the chance to jumpstart their progress and complete all or most of their Journey activities over the course of a single day!
Our Journey Express Days are designed to serve multiple Girl Scout levels and interests. From advocating for yourself to protecting the environment, there is so much to explore. Search for upcoming events and sign up through the link below!
A self-guided alternative to council-led Journey Express Days, we invite troop leaders with 25 or more Girl Scouts in their troop to request a Journey Express Kit!
Journey Express Kits include everything your troop needs to get started on their paths of self-discovery by earning their "It's Your World-Change It" or "It's Your Story-Tell It" Journey Awards. Troops will receive Journey books, curriculums, materials, and registration assistance from one of our dedicated GSGNY staff members.
