Take the Lead  

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 2023 Take the Lead events will honor 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.
