Bliss + Gold Award Training

This Bliss Journey Jumpstart will get you geared up to complete the Journey with your troop after the program. Envision your future, reflect on your past, and start taking actionable steps to get where you want to go. You'll explore your own values, and how your gifts serve the world around you, journeying from introspection to applicable changes you can create in your community. This Journey Jumpstart includes a Gold Award workshop at the end, which fulfills the mandatory requirement for Gold Award training.
