Girls encouraging girls to lead, grow and take charge

The Ahwatukee Service Team is taking new steps to foster girl leadership.

Members of this service team decided to create a girl advisory board consisting of two groups called the Service Squad (Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors) and the Daisy’s Dames (Daisies and Brownies) that support all levels of troop leaders.

The girl advisory board’s involvement includes hosting neighborhood events, offering service project ideas and leading troop activities. One of their biggest efforts is encouraging other girls to lead and take initiative.

“Even our younger girls who were shy, now want to be upfront and in charge!” says Karen Meinerz, Troop Leader of Ahwatukee Service Team.

A girl-led environment is so powerful that it is giving these girls the opportunity to gain practical life skills, develop healthy relationships and feel empowered to make a difference in the world. Simply amazing!
