Girl Scouting


Alison Trachtman Hill worked at the national headquarters of the Girl Scouts of the USA for many years.  She is an expert in the Girl Scout Program and the Girl Scout Leadership Development Model and has vast experience creating safe-spaces within all-girl environments.  She is the creator of Sister to Sister: The Darker Side of Friendship (a resource for GS Cadettes -6-8th graders about relational aggression and girl-on-girl violence), co-author of aMaze: The Twists and Turns of Getting Along (the Cadette Resource of the It’s Your World, Change it! Journey), and an expert reviewer and contributor for the It’s Your Story Tell It! Journey series.

Alison conducted a training called “Peer Abuse in the Media” for the Power of Popular Conference hosted by Girl Scouts of New Jersey.  During this hands-on workshop, participants engaged with the content from the Sister to Sister: The Darker Side of Friendship resource and aMaze: The Twists and Turns of Getting Along journey book. Attendees implemented activities as well as discussed the topics of peer abuse (bullying, cyber bullying and relational aggression) and how the media represents girl-to-girl acts of violence.
