As Cadette Girl Scouts, tweens and teens can connect with their peers, create experiences, swap ideas, share thoughts and immerse themselves in interests that often lead to careers and lifetime occupations. And they can blaze their own pathways in an environment that builds self-esteem as well as a growing respect for the needs of others. Cadettes are in grades 6 through 8. Girls work on a range of projects together under the guidance of trained adults. And, of course, they continue earning awards. Everything from conflict resolution to aerospace can be explored, which makes Girl Scouting relevant to girls of all backgrounds and ambitions.
We encourage girls to find their own style with the various uniform components available through Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana retail shops. They include sporty T-shirts, polo-shirts, V-necks, khaki pants, shorts, or skirts. The Girl Scout Membership Pin (and the WAGGS Pin) can be worn on clothing over the heart on the left side.
