To become a Cadette Program Aide, a sixth-, seventh-, or eighth-grade girl must:
- Earn an LIA award.
- Complete a council-designed Program Aide leadership training course.
- Work directly with younger girls over six activity sessions. This might entail assisting girls on Journey activities (in addition to what was required for the LIA award), badge activities or other sessions. She might work with a group at their meetings, a service unit-run day camp or during a special council event.
