Girl Scouts

Civic Engagement is more than the sum of its parts. Just as a community is more than a simple sum of its citizens, civic engagement works at the intersection of passion, interest and talent. Come find your passion in civic engagement through a series of hands-on workshops led by Julie Warm, Ph.D., of the UMKC Civic Engagement Program.

For Cadettes
Finding Common Ground: Group Decision Making
How do you combine many ideas into one? Come to this fun, hands-on demonstration of how to make decisions in a group. This could help in your troop meetings or as you work toward your Silver Award or other take action projects. This workshop connects to the Amaze Journey and will complete step #5 of the Cadette Finding Common Ground Badge.

Two-hour class
Cost per girl: $15 or two classes for $25

Finding Common Ground: Mediation
Friendship dramas can be tough. But when conflicts arise, a good peace maker can make a huge difference. A mediator is a third party that helps others find common ground. Come and see if you are a good mediator. This workshop connects to the Amaze Journey and will complete step #2 of the Cadette Finding Common Ground Badge.
