2023 Take the Lead Nominations

Take the Lead is the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania’s (GSEP) 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. Each year, high school age Girl Scouts are paired with honorees for a unique leadership development experience. A true highlight of the Girl Scout experience, Take the Lead enables girls to forge long-lasting, valuable mentorships with honorees and connect directly with their community.
