Walk-Together Program

 

Pines of Carolina CouncilThe "Walk-Together" program was set up for AVA clubs, who would work together with a Girl Scout Council in their area to designate an AVA walk as a program activity for girls and troops in the council's jurisdiction. The council would publicize the walk and perhaps register girls. The AVA club could provide the AVA Participation Patch for Girl Scout Walks as an award for those who participated for credit at this walk.

Youth Program "Walk-Togethers": Local AVA clubs will work with youth groups, (such as the councils of the Girl Scouts of the USA and Boy Scouts of America,) to put on "Walk-Togethers." The youth group declares one of the club's events as its official "Walk-Together" and the members, family, and leaders all participate together in the official activity. Many groups participate for a unique award. To find out about having a "Walk-Together" for your group, contact the AVA's National Youth Coordinator at avayouth@ava.org
