Program Name:  A World of Girls Journey Workshop

Who:  Brownie

What:  Habitats of Girls Around the World: Troops will investigate the different styles of homes around the world and compare them to their own homes by answering questions like “What is home?” and “How do you make a house a home?” and “What is every girl’s habitat?” Girls will gain a better understanding of homes in their community, homes around the world, and what affordable housing means and looks like.  Activities include “Tell Your Story, Tell Theirs.”

Cost Per Girl: $5


Program Name:  Agent of Change Workshop

Who:  Junior

What:  Building Community One Home at a Time: Troops will enhance their community mapping skills while learning more about housing needs within their own community.  The girls hear stories of Habitat’s inspiring homeowners and learn about the journey that brought them to Habitat for Humanity and how their life has changed since moving into a safe, decent and affordable home.  Habitat staff will help girls learn the difference between service (helping with immediate need) and action (solving problems in long-term) as it relates to poverty and housing issues.  Other activities include “How Far Words Travel,” “The Many Faces of Need”

Cost Per Girl: $6


Program Name:  Get Moving Journey

Who:  Junior

What:  How “Green” is Your Habitat?  Troops will enhance their understanding of their carbon footprint, conserving energy and energy use in their home. Girls will do home-based activities like “Create a List”, and “Turn Everything Off” to help them get an idea of what their energy “norms” are, versus their energy “needs.” The girls can take a tour of a Habitat home that is “Energy Star” approved, along with a build site that is in the process of building an energy efficient home.

Girls can also learn about reusing and recycling in a different light than the usual plastic bottle salvaging. Troops can visit Habitat ReStore and see how objects that are usually throw away can be re-used and recycled for craft projects and other household ventures.

Cost Per Girl: $6
