Journey World is a unique, experiential programming space designed to inspire the next generation of civic and community leaders. Journey World's dynamic curriculum is designed to appeal to both the 95,000 Girl Scouts who live in the greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana region, as well as to K-12th grade students across the area. This center for leadership and innovation challenges young people to think creatively about commerce, entrepreneurship, science, math, and the environment, then take action to make the world a better place. The sensory-stimulating center is uniquely designed as two separate floors that spotlight interrelated learning opportunities. On the It's Your Planet - Love It! floor, a 10,000-square foot "Eco-Lab" transforms students into young scientists. They use state-of-the-art technologies and equipment in a realistic mini-city and cave, forest, prairie and lake ecosystems.
