Becoming Me Program Series

Who am I? Who do I want to become?

Welcome to the Becoming Me program, inspired by former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama’s book Becoming: Adapted for Young Readers. As a participant in this unique experience, Girl Scouts can explore the truth of their own stories and the power of their voices while hanging out with friends!
