Take the Lead
What is Take the Lead?
Take the Lead is the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania’s signature fundraising event honoring our community’s most distinguished women whose leadership and professional achievements make the world a better place. Girl Scouts of all ages produce this unique leadership program and develop the skills necessary to become the future leaders of tomorrow.
