I had the opportunity to speak with Katie Amrhein the Education Manager at the PAWS Animal Shelter and Wildlife Center in Lynnwood, WA. She shared with me some great opportunities for leaders all over the USA who want to do virtual workshops with their troops. Below is all the details you need to know how to set up a workshop with your troop.

PAWS offers nationally-recognized Girl Scout badge programs, and our programs for Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes! This short video gives a glimpse into the programs.

Virtual Workshops

PAWS Brownie Pets is a live Zoom program that uses an adopted pet’s story to explore animal emotions, pet care, animal shelters, and more. Brownies play, watch, understand, and craft using supplies that you already have at home. The activities in this fulfill the requirements for the Brownie Pets badge. We meet for 90 minutes.

PAWS Junior Animal Habitats is an interactive program for Junior Girl Scouts. We explore the value of habitats, and endangered habitats in particular, while learning about animals and brainstorming ways to help animals every day. The program includes a game, an art project, and wild animal photos and videos. We meet over Zoom for 90 minutes.

PAWS Cadette Animal Helpers is a live, educator-led workshop that features games, scavenger hunts, discussion, and activities designed to fulfill all of the requirements for the Cadette Animal Helpers badge. The PAWS program also reinforces our values, particularly respecting animals and the importance taking good care of pets. We meet over Zoom for 90 minutes.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
