12 September 2018

What makes you who you are?

What do you enjoy? What do you value? How do feelings affect you? These are just some of the questions explored with the badges and activities in our Know Myself theme. It’s all about understanding emotions, building confidence and, of course, learning about yourself.

Everything in our new programme – from badges and awards to unit meeting activities and skills builders – fits into one of our six programme themes. Come with us now as we explore all things Know Myself. We’ll look at the badges and activities in the theme and find out what Know Myself means to some of our members. Then why not see if you can beat our just-for-fun Know Myself quiz!

Brilliant badges awards and activities

From Personal brand to Morals and values, there's loads of interest badges and skills builders to explore in the Know Myself theme. Check them all out in our badge finder. There's lots of Know Myself unit meeting activities to try out too.

Girls and young women who want to take it further can achieve a Know Myself theme award for each section by completing:

  • One interest badge
  • One skills builder stage
  • A certain number of hours of unit meeting activities from the Know Myself theme: 3 hours for Rainbows, 4 hours for Brownies and 5 hours for Guides and Rangers

The Know Myself icon is a blue circle with cogs inside. And all Know Myself awards, badges and unit meeting activities can be recognised by their blue colour.
