Sunbeams is a fun program for girls ages 6 to 11 and teaches them to help at home, study and respect nature, and help others. The program also helps them grow in mind and spirit.
Girl Guards is for girls from 6th grade through the senior year of high school and is designed to teach them skills, and help them address issues with social, mental, physical, and spiritual needs and also gives them the opportunity to help the world around them.
Boy Scouts of America’s program, Scoutreach, utilizes the Learning for Life curriculum. This is an evidence-based model that teaches lessons on character development and scouting core values through role-playing, small-group discussions, reflective exercises and hands-on activities. Lessons are designed to reinforce such skills as critical thinking, creativity, conflict resolution, decision making, interpersonal relationships, communication, self-esteem, language arts, citizenship and personal fitness.
