host your own workshop
We believe that teaching design thinking & girls leadership should be fun, easy to learn, and accessible for everyone. That's why we've worked hard to package all our best practices together in one box. All you need to get started is a Teaching Toolkit.
about the teaching toolkit
The Teaching Toolkit is a "workshop in a box" that arrives right at your doorstep and includes all the materials and info you'll need to teach a workshop. In the box, you'll find:
- Facilitation Guidebook
- "How To" Note Cards
- Activity Strength Cards
- Leadership Quiz Cards and Answer Keys
When your toolkit arrives, check out our online tutorials with step-by-step instructions, photos, and videos for teaching your first workshop. The course is self-paced, so start whenever you're ready and feel free to come back to it over time to refresh your memory.
What kind of impact do you want to create?
You can use the Teaching Toolkit to...
- Kick-off the new school-year in an inspiring, meaningful way. The workshop focuses on teamwork and creativity, helping students to bond, celebrate each other's strengths, and gain confidence in sharing ideas of their own.
- Try design thinking for the first time in your Girl Scout troop, classroom, program, or event.
- Create a space for girls to connect as leaders and change-makers in your school or community.
- Add a social impact mission/purpose to the STEM work that your community is already doing. For example, if your girls are learning to code, take the next step and show them how to use their programming skills to make a difference in the world.
- Empower high school or college women to coach a workshop and become even stronger mentors, leaders, and role-models for younger girls at their school or in their community.
The Teaching Toolkit can be used to coach as many workshops as you'd like. Just keep re-stocking the kit with post-its and print-out packets, and you'll be all set to go.
We partner with a diverse range of schools, organizations, and individuals around the world to share our curriculum with the girls and communities who need it most.
