Through College Journey, middle and high school girls had to the opportunity to live and learn on the campus of the University of Texas at Dallas.


Over the course of the week, girls attended a variety of project - based learning workshops that challenge them to work collaboratively across STEM curriculum, and prepare them for a college environment. 


Like all programs in Girl Scouts, College Journey helps girls realize their full potential by developing critical thinking and leadership skills, connecting with others in a new environment, and taking action to make a difference in the world. 


Through the generous support of the FLUOR Foundation, College Journey Cadette Week welcomed 110 middle school aged Girl Scouts and 120 high school aged Girl Scouts attended the Senior and Ambassador Week, sponsored by Texas Instruments.
