The Girl Scout educational method is WAGGGS’ unique model of non-formal education to support the development of young people in diverse groups. Used well, it creates a learning environment where young people can take the lead and make choices about what they do. By using the method effectively, leaders will empower youth members and any programme activity can become relevant and exciting.
Learning in small groups
We learn to: support each other, negotiate, make democratic decisions, assert our needs, solve problems together and take the lead.
My Path , My Pace
We learn to: respect individuals, make our own choices, learn in the best way for us, value our achievements, collaborate not compete and be confident.
Learning by doing
We learn to: face challenges, learn through experience, take risks, make mistakes, get involved and pay attention.
Connecting with others
We learn to: value others, appreciate diversity, listen, connect, make a difference, develop empathy and communicate.
Connecting with my world
We learn to: be active citizens, get our hands dirty, enjoy the outdoors, get involved in our community, speak out for change and pay attention to the wider world.
Each age group have their own tailor made method
