Free Being Me Virtual Training (for Guides)
28/08/2020 @ 2:30 pm - 5:45 pm
Dear Guiders, Free Being Me Workshop This activity-based programme will enable the participants to discover that their society, through media and people around them, encourages them to try to look like a very narrow definition of beauty. We want to help participants improve their confidence and self-esteem to realise their fullest potential. Through fun and interactive activities, they will learn that body confidence and self-esteem come from valuing their bodies, standing up to social pressures and supporting others to be more body confident. The programme will challenge them to take the lead by taking action in their community, sharing what they have learnt with their peers. This is an opportunity to develop and sharpen participants’ planning, organising and leadership skills. They will also learn new ideas that will be useful for running fun and meaningful unit activities using the WAGGGS non-formal educational method. Given the current COVID-19 outlook, we would not be able to have the workshop in HQ. We will conduct the trainings online over 2 separate sessions instead.
