In a 2007 study conducted by Girl Scouts of America, middle school girls defined leadership as:
- Having good communication skills
- Speaking up for myself
- Knowing how to resolve conflicts
- Being a good role model
- Influencing others
- Taking care of my family
This tells us that girls understand leadership at very early ages and it is imperative that we provide opportunities for them to harness and direct their leadership in healthy and meaningful ways.
We offer an exciting leadership development opportunity for middle school girls at our Majors Leadership Spring Break Camp during Seattle Public Schools' Spring Break. Click here to learn more about the Leadership Camp.
