Programs from Girl Guides Australia
Be part of positive change with the Guides Connect Badge 2020! Look to be a proactive influencer by completing challenges in a number of categories across different aspects of your world – your home, Guiding Unit and your community.
In 2020 for Anzac Day, Girl Guides can conduct research or undertake activities focusing on the Australian Defence Force during times of war.
Through this commemorative challenge Guides are encouraged to reflect on the service, sacrifice and bravery of our Defence Force Members who have served in wars, conflicts and peace keeping operations.
The National Program Team in partnership with Transport Women Australia Ltd have developed a Program resource, activities and a colouring book to encourage girls to explore a range of activities focusing on transport in Australia. Women are a vital part of an industry that moves people, food and goods around the country and is a necessary part of both industry but also our daily life.
The program resource provides a range of ideas for girls to pursue including careers, art, science and road safety and they may choose to work towards their Create a Challenge Wheels badge as part of the program.
Programs from WAGGGS
Through fun and interactive activities, children and young people learn that body confidence and self-esteem come from valuing their bodies, standing up to social pressures, and supporting others to be more body confident.
Voices against Violence (VAV) is a non-formal learning program for boys and girls that has been developed by UN Women and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). The initiative is designed to help young people learn to talk about violence, understand its root causes, recognise their rights and develop the skills and confidence to access those rights for themselves and others.
