BE THE CHANGE
Be the Change - A Community Action Program for members aged 14+
You must be the change you want to see in the world
Mahatma Gandhi
Be the Change is an educational program on how to take action in your local community and it represents a challenge to our members; equipped with these tools, we believe that every group of WAGGGS members aged 14 and above can be the change in their community by developing and running a community action project.
Be the Change Cover Community action requires no special qualifications or expertise; anyone who is passionate about their community and wants to make a difference can bring real change to the places and people they care about. Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, equipped with leadership skills and a strong and supportive network of peers and mentors that spans the globe, are truly ready to take the lead in their communities and be the change they want to see in the world.
You can download today our new toolkit on Community Action here!

"GSK & Habitat for Humanities Patch




Be the first Girl in your troop to earn the free Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana / Habitat for Humanity patch. All Girl Scouts in ALL Pathways are invited to participate too!!!   It is as simple as getting one or more of the items from the wish list below and dropping it off at your local Girl Scout PLC and picking up your patch.



Then you can show the patch to your troop, and talk about your service with the other girls. If just one girl gets another girl to help out and so on, just think of all the great welcome gifts Habitat will have to share as they give a family the keys to their new "home".



Have fun shopping for your welcome gift. You can even send a hand made card to welcome the family. Everyone who brings in an item will receive a patch. Leaders are welcome to drop off items and pick up patches for a whole troop.
Here's more information! "
