Instagram’s generous support of the Digital Leadership Badge for girls in grades K-12 enables Girl Scouts to explore what a digital leader is and how to become one. They learn how to be online in a responsible, safe, and positive way, and dive into topics like managing their well-being and time spent online, and how to navigate online misinformation, clickbait and biases in advertising. Thanks to Instagram, Girl Scouts discover how people use technology to connect, build community, and lead, then use those skills to create impact and become digital leaders themselves.
