Cadette Corner: Badge Update & Breathe Journey Take Action Project

Asalaamu Alaikum

The Cadette troop has been busy this year. Here is the Cadette badge update:

Badge Location Status
Night Owl Troop meeting Completed
Financial Literacy badge Children’s Museum Completed when turned in work
Public Speaking Troop meeting In progress
Entrepreneur Speaker Troop meeting In progress
Girl Scout Way March Magic Completed
Babysitting Speaker / Certification Class / Babysitting Schedule Some Completed / Some Not Attempted
aMaze Journey Journey Day at Masjid None completed
My Faith, My Promise Pin May 14 Interfaith Outreach Event In progress (group work only)

The girls who put in work really did a great job. Kudos to those girls who bravely stepped outside of their comfort zone to work with others, meet their deadlines, and produce good work!

With that in mind, I need four Cadettes to bring in one thank you card each for this year’s guest speakers who help the girls to achieve their goals.


Girls who went to the Breathe Journey weekend last year will work on completing the Take Action project. There are girls who want to finish this Journey, so we are going to throw around ideas, keep it simple, but make it sustainable.

The following Cadettes are working on the Breathe Journey Take Action Project:

Amirah A. Amirah M. Yoursa A.
Safiyah A. Irkam A. Nabila A.
Kadijahtu B. Ruwaida S. Nasrin A.
Aneesah B. Yusra B. Kadijahtu B.

As a part of the Take Action Project, Cadettes will need to attend the Earth Day Celebration at the Diyanet Center of America to gather ideas and information. This event is free. Side note: Sis Kori, Junior troop leader and founder of Green Ramadan will be part of the Green Muslim panel discussion.


See you there!

Cadette Corner: My Faith, My Promise Event and Badge Update


Asalaamu Alaikum Ladies,

This Friday is the last day to present for the Meet A Muslimah Girl Scout Muslimah Interfaith Outreach event. If parts are not done then we might have to think about not participating. Cadettes have had since February to prepare and the event is in May. Here are the part distributions:

Welcome: Kalilah K. / Ruwaidah S. (They were the only girls who were present for the competition at the last troop meeting.)

Shahadah: Rayanah W. has one presentation. (This is group work. Other groups might have to help with this one.)

Salah: Yousra A. / Sanaa L.

Sawm: Ikram A. / Sumayah Y.

Zakat: Nasrin A. / Dahlia A.

Hajj: Siham N. / Zainab A. / Amirah M.

You are all to present for Sis Kori. Presentations must have leader approval. Friday we will also decide if this group will be participating in the program at all based on what is presented. We want to have a stellar performance so girls are going to have to give 110%.

Here is a list of badges Cadettes worked on this year:

  • Night Owl: Done in meeting
  • Babysitter: Girls had to take the Girl Scout babysitting class or other outside training. Bring in the receipt.
  • Public Speaker: done in meeting
  • New Cuisines: Girls chose to do this on their own or in small groups, but they also had to present.
  • Entrepreneur : Did not finish; might finish in May
  • Financial Literacy badge: Done at Chesapeake Children’s Museum
  • aMaze Journey: None of the Cadettes who completed the book work turned in a proposal for a Take Action project.

The Cadette troop will need lots of parent participation next year. We’ll need a Money Manager, Cookie Mom, fall product sales person, Cook-out Camp certified adult, as well as those trained in archery, canoeing and first aid. If these positions are not filled the Cadette troop will possibly be regulated to a couple of meetings at most.

Ma Salaama
