Young Leaders’ Acceleration Program Briefing

30/12/2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dear Young Adults / Guiders, 


We will be having another briefing for Young Leaders Acceleration Program (YALP) in December 2023.


Objective: Empower Young Leaders to thrive as leaders and be changemakers within GGS



  • Open to all current and former members of Girl Guides Singapore aged 21 years old to 30 years old
  • Existing Uniformed members or working towards being a Uniformed member



Using the WAGGGS Leadership Framework to develop the Young Leader in the necessary competencies


What it means?


Step 1: Awareness

Understand the Leadership Model and the 6 Mindsets and the Organisation

Young Adult and Mentor would attend:

  • The WAGGGS Leadership Model and 6 Mindsets Training
  • Facilitation Workshop (MOE Sponsored)
  • Basic Training Course* (applicable to the Young Leader only. Mentor should technically have attended BTC herself)
  • Complete the Advocacy GuidingLIGHT Resource (developed by SDG Committee)

  • All expenses paid under Training Grant.
  • She can also consider tying this in with her NYAA Gold if she wishes.

To allow the Young Leader and Mentor to speak the same language

Step 2: Practice

Consciously practise the Leadership Model

The practice component and internalise component will be interrelated.

Young Leader to identify a specific project that she would like to embark. The timeframe is 6 months to 1 year. 

Project could take place in two formats:

  1. Give a problem statement to solve
  2. Enhance existing programs

Project will be subject to approval by the relevant personnel.

Project would take reference from the Social Action Project developed by the SDG Committee.
