Girls in Action
Activities that make a difference
Our Girls in Action activity packs were created in partnership with other charities who know that girls can be the change they want to see
Girls in Action is a project for all sections of Girlguiding. It is an opportunity to learn about issues that affect other girls and young women in the UK and around the world, using projects created by expert charities at the forefront of this work.
Most importantly, Girlguiding members can take action by advocating, raising awareness and volunteering to make a real difference.
There are five projects in Girls in Action; girls can choose to do as many as they like. Once they have completed a project and taken action, members can be rewarded with one of the five Girls in Action badges.
Change the Story
Change the Story looks at the experiences of girls and young women living in the UK today and asks girls to consider the world around them and the relationships they have.
