Here is the latest update from your friendly Girls First team!
Last week Girls First headed to beautiful British Columbia. We stopped in Vancouver to meet with senior volunteers, parents, Girls, Guiders and staff to provide updates on how the new program is shaping up, and to collect thoughts and feedback from the field. Each person brought a unique perspective that will help to inform the program’s development. We also had the chance to learn from BC’s Museum and Archives Committee. They shared stories of Guiding in 1955 and were adamant that any new program “MUST BE FLEXIBLE!”
On Sunday, we headed up to Smithers, BC to meet the Girls and the inspiring volunteers who are part of SOAR: BC’s well-known and super-organized Girl empowerment experience! It was incredible!
The team started with a meeting with BC’s camping adviser, international adviser, co-programming adviser, and Deputy PC. We spent over two hours going through the plans for the Girls First program model and the needed training and education supports. They provided terrific insights and feedback that will help to make the 2018 launch amazing.
