Advocacy Mentorship Programme 2023


Dear Guiders and Guides,


Are YOU passionate about sustainability? Do YOU want to make a positive change in your community? If so, join our Advocacy Mentorship Programme 2023!


This is a programme for Guides to work in teams of four (all Guides being from the same school) to design and execute an original advocacy project related to one of our four focal UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

  • Climate Action
  • Gender Equality
  • Reducing Inequalities
  • Good Health and Wellbeing


Each team will be paired up with an External Mentor who has substantial experience and knowledge advocating for the chosen SDG. The External Mentor will provide project guidance and feedback to develop the group’s project management and advocacy skills.


Advocacy is not simply raising awareness of an issue; it involves mobilising collective action to promote changes in policy, practices, or laws. Advocacy should ultimately identify and target one or more decisionmaker(s) (e.g., school principal, community leaders, Member of Parliament, or businesses leaders). To learn more about advocacy, access the WAGGGS toolkit here.


This programme will run from April 2023 to October 2023. Within this six-month period, the team must complete their advocacy project and accumulate at least 10 hours of execution time. ‘Execution’ does not include planning time and refers to any action of creation or advocacy (e.g., pitching to decision-maker, making banners, setting up and running social media campaigns, giving speeches, etc.).


There will be an Opening and Closing event at HQ in April and October respectively. However, apart from these two events, the dates and times of group meetings and activities will be decided by the group in consultation with their External Mentor and Guider.


At the end of the project, each group will have to submit a project portfolio, which includes photographs and individual group members’ reflections. All activities during the project period, and the corresponding time spent on each activity, should be properly recorded in a Record of Activities. More details will be provided to selected groups.


The project can be used to qualify for the President’s Guide Award and, if other members of the unit are involved in the execution of the project, the Puan Noor Aishah Award. More details will be provided to selected groups.


Each group shall select a group leader. The group leader shall submit her group’s application, after discussion with her teammates and Guider(s) on the project proposal, to this link. Throughout the project, the group leader shall be responsible for communicating with GGS HQ and the group’s External Mentor.


Applications will close on Saturday, 25 March 2023.


If you have any queries or concerns, please email Specialprojcomr@girlguides.org.sg to clarify before the deadline.
