LiA stands for Leader-in-Action. This award is for Cadette girls who are in sixth, seventh, or eighth grade. There is one LiA award for each of the three Journey Series. A girl may earn one LiA award or all three. The LiA is a prerequisite for girls who want to earn their Program Aide award.
Cadettes will work with a group of Brownies assisting them as they work towards a Journey award. If the Brownie troop has already completed the Journey book, a Cadette may still plan extra activities to enrich the recent Journey experience. To earn this award the Cadette will need to meet with the troop or group of Brownies a minimum of four times. Cadettes will work with the Brownie adult volunteer to plan, coordinate and assist in leading activities with the Brownies. The steps required to earn this award can be found in the Brownie Leadership Journey adult guides.
Once girls have completed their LiA, please complete the LiA Reporting Form showing documentation of your activity sessions. You can then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to:
