Cadette Program Aide
What are Program Aides?
Program Aides are Cadettes that want to help out in Girl Scouting. They want to serve as a leader, role model, and mentor to younger girls. To become a Program Aide, girls must complete the steps listed below. Once these steps are completed, these skills will be usable at day camps, Community Leadership Team events, council events, or with troops. The skills learned also are applicable to everyday life and will help girls become confident, effective leaders in everything they do. Becoming a Program Aide is also a great résumé boost for girls and sets them up for success when working towards their Highest Awards!
To become a Program Aide follow these steps:
- Earn one LiA (Leadership in Action) Award. The requirements for this can be found in The Cadette Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting on page 30.
- Complete the Program Aide Council Training. This training will include leadership training and learning to work with children. To sign up for this training, go to Girl Scouts of Utah’s activity finder and register to attend at one of our three Council Offices.
- Work directly with younger girls over six activity sessions. How this happens for each girl may vary. This can be assisting girls on Journey activities (in addition to what you have already done for your LiA), badge activities, troop meetings, or other activities. You can help out also help out at day camps or council events to complete this last step.
Note: Program Aide Award Pins are available in our shop for purchase after completion of the previous steps.
