Cadettes
Asalaamu Alaikum

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

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.

BREATHE JOURNEY

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.

Cadette Corner: Busy Bees

Asalaamu Alaikum

The Cadette Troop has been very busy this year, Alhumdulillah, from completing multiple badges (Cadette programing) to camping (Girl Scout traditions) to team building and just fun. Here are some highlights:

Science of Happiness. Sis Nazaahah Amin-Saahir gave a great yoga class at our lodge camping weekend in January. Sis Nazaahah, owner and operator of Ama Designs, helped our girls use yoga as a way to promote happiness and stay positive through life’s highways and byways.

aMaze Take Action Projects. We have 15 girl that are currently working on their aMaze Journey Take Action projects. A Take Action project — the final step in all Girls Scout journeys — is the sustainable project that a girl or group of girls can do that deals with the subject matter of the Journey. The aMaze journey teaches girls about relationships and how to navigate them.

Breathe Journey. Eleven girls attended the GSCNC Cadette Breathe Journey weekend in March with 150 other girls at Potomac Woods to fulfill requirements of the Breathe Journey. These girls are now eligible to complete the Breathe Journey with a Take Action project focusing on air and the environment.

Media Journey. In April, some Cadettes will be participating in the Media Journey at Gadsby’s Tavern Museum where they will complete the journey that night. For those girls who cannot attend, Sis. Hakeemah Cummings will discuss Muslim Women in media and blogging with the girls.
