I get asked a lot what other resources are out there for Girl leaders other than my site.  I have done a lot of digging on the web and have found some really good places to go to get not only ideas, but also planned programs just like I offer here at Leader Connecting Leaders.  There are blogs that leaders have started sharing what they have done, and of course there is also Pinterest which houses endless ideas from all over the web.  I try to share as much as I can on my Pinterest boards from all over the web so be sure to stop over and follow all my boards: Leader Connecting Leaders Pinterest

Where are the requirements for badges?

At the time of this writing this site is still active, if this link does not work send me a email and let me know and I can update this post. I found a website where someone went through and transcribed all the badges into word documents.   Check It Out

I am Looking for Fun Patches What are Best sites for that?

I have a few go to sites that I like to use. As many of you know Girl Scout Fun patches are nice but at a price point as high as many of them are we all find that its hard to justify spending over a dollar each on fun patches. Because of that we are always looking for other places to find patches.  I will list Girl Scouts official store, but be sure to check out these other 4 great sites for patches.

Blogs With Scouting Resources

While out on the web I have come across a number of great websites that are either specific to Scouts or have a number of post, categories dedicated to talking about ideas for leaders.

Planned Programs and Activities

Well of course I will plug my resources here on Leader Connecting Leaders shop, but beyond my site there are a few other sites I would highly recommend, if you can’t find what you need here or need more resources for your troop check out these other two shops, I have used them both and have great resources for new and seasoned leaders.

  • Leader Connecting Leaders Resources: YOUR HERE, just hit the shop button at top of page,  you will find badge activity booklets for every level and they have everything you need to earn the badges, Thinking Day activities, Planned parties, and each month more are added so be sure to subscribe to mailing list to be first to be notified.
  • MakingFriends Shop – This site has free and paid ideas as well, including badge in a bag programs for almost all the Journeys for each level. If your struggling to get the Journey books done with your troop, I would highly recommend looking at the kits on this site.
  • Growing Girls Scouting Helpers – This shop has over 50 downloadable printables, most of them are focused on Daisy to Junior, but she does also have programs for Thinking Day, and learning more about our founder Juliette Low.

Listen For Ideas – Podcasts Resource

Are you someone who loves to listen to Podcast for Ideas? If so be sure to check out Silver & Gold Podcast   She shares ideas you can use as well as more resources on website, and guest who share things they have done.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
