Agent of Change




A fashion-savvy spider named Dez will show you how you and your friends can combine your own power into team power and then use it to generate community power.

This is a 7-session Journey, but could be modified to fit your troop’s needs.

Programming Ideas for Troop Meetings 

  • Research heroines – maybe have them dress up like their heroine and share what they learned at a troop meeting or “power of one” celebration
  • Blindfold trust games or other team building activities at a troop meeting or campout
  • Research local community issues (past or present) - look at both sides of the issue, visit with people involved
  • Bring in examples of comic books, plays or stories that they can use for inspiration
  • Volunteer for an animal shelter like the girls in the story

Helpful Hints

  • Pages 80 and 81 of the Facilitator Guide have a few activities to help girls look at their communities
  • This is when it starts being stressed that girls should do a lot of planning in their take action project
  • Great descriptions of take action projects - it would provide a great basis for your Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards
  • You might want to extend the Journey to follow the girl book in order
  • Each girl should have a copy of the Journey book    
  • The green boxes throughout the Facilitator Guide have great additional programming options
