PLT – Pioneer Leadership Training

PLT is a great way for the girls to expand their leadership skills and meet Pioneers from all over the state. There are 6 courses for them to explore and they can complete up to 2 a year.

The training aims to engage the girls in learning experiences that prepare them for leadership roles within Girls’ Brigade, their Churches and the wider community. A holistic approach is taken to explore leadership, personal and spiritual development.
