Journey: aMUSE

The aMUSE Journey is part of the "It's Your Story—Tell It!" series.

In this Journey, you will:

  1. Explore roles you play in your life and try on new ones—play a role-playing game, invite actors to talk about the characters they’ve played, or learn to spot stereotypes on TV, in movies, or in ads.
  2. Plan a Take Action Project, such as putting on a performance that creatively urges an end to stereotyping, drawing a graphic novel to share with younger girls, or starting a “mix it up” day in the school cafeteria and having girls sit with new people.
  3. Earn 3 leadership awards: Reach Out!, Speak Out!, and Try Out! If you're a Girl Scout volunteer, go to Volunteer Toolkit for complete meeting plans and activity instructions.

Learn more about how to earn your Take Action Award — and help your community — with the Girl Scout Take Action Guide. Then use your leadership skills to earn your Bronze Award, the highest award for Girl Scout Juniors!
