Anatomy of an Interest Project

This is from the Interest Projects for Girls 11-17.  I’m preparing to put more information on Girl Scout Guide about completing Interest Projects.  As a refresher, here’s the qualifications for earning an Interest Project:

Each interest project contains numerous activities, which are organized into four different categories: Skill Builders, Technology, Service Projects, and Career Exploration.  By doing these activities, you will gain insights about yourself – your strengths and weaknesses, your likes and dislikes.  You will have a range of new experiences, and you will develop valuable skills and expertise in specific areas.  To earn an interest project patch, you must complete at least seven activities as follows:

  • Two Skill Builders activities.
  • One Technology activity.
  • One Service Project activity.
  • One Career Exploration activity.
  • Two activities from any category that you choose.

For the purposes of Girl Scout Guide, I’ll identify the different activities with different icons.

So very soon I’ll be posting information about some badges with tips and tricks for completing various activities to complete the badge.  I’ll also be designing a check off sheet you can help track some activities with.  These tips will be great for leaders who want to work on the badges as a troop, or for individual girls working on badges independently.  They’ll start next week.  If there’s a particular badge you’d like me to offer tips & tricks for, please let me know!
