WLDP - 3. Advocacy

WAGGGS Leadership Development Programme modules

The WLDP Leadership Resources are modules available to trainers, which will support Member Organizations in developing leadership development activities, events and workshops for new, existing and potential leaders. These modules include theory, individual and group exercises and guided reflection on the topics. 

Please note: The materials are offered as support materials and not as an alternative to a full WLDP event.

3. Advocacy

I am 1 in 10 million!

WAGGGS is a well-skilled advocating organization. Since 2005 the intention of speaking out on behalf of its 10 million members, and often also on behalf of the girls and young women of the world – has been one of the main objectives of the association.

With the release of the WAGGGS Advocacy Tool Kit, the organization and its member organizations have the basic foundation for advocating throughout the world.

Advocacy is also a main objective for any leader and executive within WAGGGS and therefore advocacy is also a natural part of the WAGGGS Leadership Development Programme. 

Where the WAGGGS Advocacy Tool Kit is aimed at providing the leaders of girls and young women with tools and ideas for activities in the unit, this WLDP module version is aimed at providing the leader herself with the opportunity of practicing and evolving her own confidence and competence in advocacy.

This module is therefore to be regarded as a supplement to the toolkit, consisting of theoretical chapters, individual and group exercises to support the personal development of the advocating WAGGGS leader. The exercises can be used as supporting activities to the Tool Kit.
