Want to make a difference?

The make change skills builder will show you how to identify issues in your local community and help you take action to change things for the better. Stage 4 is recommended for Guides.

Here's a taste of the activities you can look forward to trying at this stage. Ask your leader about all the things you'll need to do to earn this badge.

Big changes start with small steps - Change comes from big actions like campaigning or fundraising, but taking small steps in your everyday life is important too. Take a closer look at the actions you take every day and discover the power of starting small.

Wear your heart on your sleeve - Shouting isn’t the only way to get heard. Sometimes you can spread a message without saying a word. Create a patch for a change-making statement, and inspire others to take action.

Testing out tactics - Explore the tools and tactics you can use to help make positive changes happen.

Money and a message! - Fundraise for a charity or a good cause and help bring about change! Make your efforts extra effective by including a change-making message that spreads the word to others. 

Who cares?! - What do you and the people you know really care about? Find out – and design your own magazine to highlight the biggest issues.
