Young Leaders Program
YLP troops are located in area public schools and a select number of private/parochial and charger schools. YLP troops are for girls between the ages 5-13, who participate in six-week sampler programs. The aim of the program is to transition a large percentage of sampler programs to long-term, traditional troops. While in YLP troops girls will experience the traditions of Girl Scouting as well as enjoy activities involving health, fitness, science, art, literacy, career exploration and culture.
Our Young Leaders are highly motivated students, leaders in the community and mentors to girls in the District of Columbia and Prince George's County.Young Leaders are trained and given pre-planned curriculum to use during the six-week sampler sessions.
