Take the Lead

Take the Lead 2021 Events  

TAKE THE LEAD supports the phenomenal work that Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania (GSEP) is doing to give every girl the opportunity be a part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) throughout our nine-county footprint.  As GSEP’s signature fundraising event, Take the Lead is an event for the girls, by the girls.

Our 2021 Take the Lead honors incredible women leaders from our community who are the positive role models our girls need today. They inspire girls everywhere and provide them with the courage, confidence, and character necessary to make the world a better place.

Take the Lead 2020 Events

Take the Lead 2020 was a unique year, with the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Only Take the Lead Philadelphia was able to take place, while the Take the Lead Berks and Lehigh Valley were canceled.  Though these events were canceled, the spirit of these events was not lost.  Our incredible sponsors stepped up their support and reaffirmed their commitment to our girls.  All of our honorees had the opportunity to mentor a high school Girl Scout, one of the unique leadership programs Take the Lead offers.  Explore below our 2020 events and learn what our girls have to say about their Take the Lead experience.
