Leader In Action (LiA) Awards

Girl Scout Cadettes have an opportunity to put their skills to work assisting Girl Scout Brownies on their Journey. Brownies (and their volunteers!) will appreciate having Cadettes along on the journey, and Cadettes will benefit from having the opportunity to have a position of responsibility.

Girls in grades 6-8 can earn a Leader in Action (LiA) award by assisting a Brownie group on any of their Leadership Journeys. There are three different LiA awards, one for each of the Journey Series: It’s Your World – Change It, It’s Your Plant – Love It, and It’s Your Story – Tell It!

To earn the LiA, girls will share their organizational skills, use their special talents (such as creating and demonstrating a science experiment or craft), teach Brownies something important from their Journey (such as making healthy snacks or getting exercise), and reflect on the experience.

The LiA award is a prerequisite to earn the Program Aide Award.

For more information about each LiA, network with the adult volunteers guiding Brownie troops in your community or contact your local leadership experience manager.
