The Girl Scout Leadership Institute (GSLI) is where a lot of the magic of convention happens! It is a triennial conference that provides girls 14 and older with three days of leadership skill-building activities tied to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE).
Girls tell us they want to make a real difference in the world, so GSLI 2014 will focus on big issues that girls across the country and around the globe are passionate about.
At the GSLI, girls will…
The GSLI experience will give each girl the opportunity to make new friends, develop important skills, learn about new planning processes, and take advantage of a support system that will be there to meet her needs—all in a fun and engaging way.
This year’s GSLI theme has never been more true! Girls will choose among seven popular issues and design related projects that will enable them to go out and make a difference in their communities.
This year’s issues are teen violence, healthy relationships, basic needs (such as hunger, poverty, homelessness, and natural disaster relief), inclusion/diversity, self-image/body image, education, and the status of women.
Each girl will also create action plans that will provide her and her council with a significant and lasting return on investment.
