GA Journey

GA Journey, the individual achievement plan for Girls in Action, helps girls in grades 1 - 6 reinforce and live out the missions concepts they learn during regular GA sessions. This optional plan provides opportunities for individual GAs to deepen their missions discipleship and strengthen their faith.


What's New in GA Journey?

  • Options for group activities with individual components. 
  • All activities provided in one leader guide. 
  • Easier to plan and use. More engaging design and activities.

How Does GA Journey Work?

GA Journey is divided into eight areas of spiritual growth: 

  • I Am a GA
  • I Do Missions
  • I Give
  • I Help Missionaries
  • I Learn the Bible
  • I Pray
  • I Serve My Church
  • I Tell About Jesus. 

To complete one level of GA Journey, a GA must complete one activity from each growth area—a total of eight activities a year.  Girls may work on GA Journey during the fourth GA session of every month, at home, while taking part in a special GA Journey event, or at any other time and place during the year. GA leaders are responsible for guiding girls through GA Journey. Each girl can work with her leaders to select her eight activities from those suggested in the GA Journey Leader Guide. Although GAs may work together on some activities, each GA must record her personal growth and reflections in her grade-level GA Journey activity book.

GA Journey Awards
GA Journey awards are iron-on badges and stars. Each badge represents one of eight the GA Journey growth areas. The stars are color-coded and represent grade levels.

The first year a girl completes eight activities, one in each GA Journey growth area, she will receive eight badges and eight stars. Once a GA earns her badges, she will not receive them again. Instead, she will receive a colored star for each growth area she completes in a year.
