New Programme Revealed

New Programme Revealed

Our new programme is revealed!!

.

Girlguiding has undergone the biggest ever overhaul revamping our iconic badges and activities to create a programme to suit #EveryGirl.

.

On July 21st we revealed over 800 new badges and activities designed to equip girls and young women with the skills and experience they will need to thrive, succeed, make change and be happy in the modern world. Girls can choose to work towards interest badges such as Entrepreneur, Inventing, Navigator, Animation, Design and many more exciting new activities.

.

The new programme has six themes and icons which remain the same throughout all sections therefore girls can recognise what they have previously learnt and challenge themselves to grow on this right through to Rangers.

.

The six themes are as follows - Know Myself, Express Myself, Be Well, Have Adventures, Take Action and Skills For My Future.

.

The new programme includes interest badges, skills builders and unit meeting activities.

.

Interest badges - These allow girls to explore something that interests them and they complete in their own times.

.

Skills builders - A small group activity spread across six stages so girls build on their knowledge as experience as they move through guiding. There are five activities in each stage and girls are awarded a badge for each stage they compete. There are twelve skill builders in total.

.

Unit meeting activities - These are additional group activities created for girls to do in their weekly meetings. They cover topics such as DIY, survival skills, exploring nature and money management.

.

The interest, skill builder and unit meeting activity badges combine so when girls have achieved a certain amount of badges and completed a certain number of hours of activities under one of the themes, they will receive their theme award badge! These are available in all sections for each theme.

.

Once a member has achieved all six theme award badges they will be awarded a Gold award badge! A unique badge which highlights the girls outstanding achievement, hard work and commitment to exploring new opportunities.
