Earn one LiA (Leader in Action) Award. (This is a pre-requisite). Work directly with younger Girl Scouts by assisting a troop with a Journey or badge activity, helping with a service unit or council event, or assisting at a Girl Scout summer camp.     Girls are able to begin working on the activity sessions in seventh grade.
