Cadette Corner: Meeting Update

Asalaamu Alaikum,

Sis Kieta did a great presentation on proposals at the last meeting. See the info below for future reference or to catch up:

Silver Award Project Proposal Form – Example 2

Silver Award Project Proposal Form – Example 1

Take Action Project Defined

For the next meeting Cadettes must work in their grade groups (6th, 7th or 8th graders) to:

  1. Find out what is outstanding for your journey and make a plan to complete it. Give yourself an attainable deadline and reach out for help.
  2. Completed group answers to the questions provided during the session. Project: Growing vegetables to give harvest to local soup kitchen or food pantry.
  3. Information is emailed by one person in your group. Use the Cadette roster to work in your groups before the next meeting.

Remember that journey awards will not be given out this year without a proposal approval. Put your energy into completing it and turning it in for approval. Once the group work is done, take it to the next level. Girls who need to complete Take Action projects should bounce their ideas off of their group members so that they can turn their proposals in and get to work! Work smarter, not harder.

Ma salaama

Sis. Kesha
