Guiding happened and happens because of girls and women. It happened originally because girls pushed to get what they want at the Crystal Palace Rally. http://www.theguardian.com/uk/2000/jul/30/bensummerskill.theobserver
Its inspiring to think that the Guiding movement was started because that’s what the girls asked for, what they were determined to have. How do we as leaders ensure that the girls have their say? For those quieter girls how do we ensure that they have the opportunity to put their point of view forward?
As leaders we gives girls and other leaders opportunities, we encourage, support, highlight things that might interest them and look out for their interests. What are the opportunities that you and your girls will have this Guiding year because of your support?
Congratulations to our two new Queen Guides – Chloe D, leader with 1st Bromborough and 1st Leamington Guides, and Vanessa N, leader with 32nd Wallasey Guides and brownies. Both these young women have spent three years working on their awards at a very busy time in their lives – Chloe has completed a PhD in chemistry and Vanessa was taking her A levels and is now studying vetinary science. As leaders we gives girls and other leaders opportunities, we encourage, support, highlight things that might interest them and look out for their interests.
How do you encourage your girls to do their Queens Guide, decide to do their Duke of Edinburgh Award, do a badge at home. Through supporting all our members we can show them that GIRLS CAN do anything they want to do.
