Girls in 8th grade and up are welcome to attend.

The Girl Scout Leadership Institute is the premier program for Girl Scouts in grades 9-12 to explore different careers, try job shadowing opportunities, and prepare for college. Come learn about our older girl programs and sample some of the opportunities available. Start the day with our keynote speaker, Dorie Clark, as she describes how to “Build Your Brand as a Leader”.  Next, representatives from Ivy League and Dallas area universities will present information and be available throughout the day for girls to ask questions.  After lunch, girls will participate in workshops and career exploration networking, as well as learn about Girl Scout travel opportunities, clubs and the Gold Award.
