#PositivityPatrol: 10-Week Leadership Challenge

In these difficult times, we want to make sure that every and any girl can still feel empowered, and have learning and development opportunities. For that we want to make sure they still have opportunities to practise leadership, and collaborate with each other to make a positive change in the world. Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world can be a #PositivityPatrol, to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others.

Each week, we will be publishing a challenge, that we encourage you to complete, and share the output to your social media with the hashtag #PositivityPatrol and the specific hashtag of the weekly challenge.

Week 3: #UnderstandOthers

Understanding and taking into account other people's perspectives and experiences during this time is crucial - we all need a bit of empathy and compassion! Think about someone that you haven't heard from lately. Communicate with them and ask them how they're really doing. Listen to their experience and share how this has helped you to understand them better with #PositivityPatrol and #UnderstandOthers. Before posting anything, please check with them that they're happy for you to share whatever you are posting.

Week 4: #TheBestYou

In the past few weeks, we've all had to be flexible and adapt to this new context. Think about what you've had to change in your life so you could continue to learn, put yourself in other people's shoes, understand the big picture, collaborate with other and make a difference. Share your tips of things you can do to be #TheBestYou even when things are tough, and don't forget to use #PositivityPatrol.

Week 5: #LeaderLikeYou

Girls and women are disproportionately affected by this crisis. More than ever, we need to empower any and every girl to practise leadership, so they can come out the other side feeling like leaders with an agency.

Think about people around you whose leadership is inspiring you at this time, why they're inspiring you and how they can inspire others. Post a shout out on your social media with #PositivityPatrol and #LeaderLikeYou, so their leadership can inspire girls all around the world. Please remember to ask for consent if you want to post a picture of them.

Week 7: #ImpactFromHome

Part of being a good leader is finding imaginative ideas and solutions to explore how things could work better. This week, try different things to help others right now (following social distancing rules of course!) - let your imagination flow, nothing is too weird or ridiculous!

Don't worry, though! We understand that we all need a little inspiration and guidance sometimes, so we developed this Impact From Home Toolkit for you! Once you've found something creative that works, share it in any way you want with #PositivityPatrol and #ImpactFromHome.

This week, research women who have done remarkable things to change their world. Choose one who inspires you and share her profile with #PositivityPatrol and #WonderfulWomen. You're not allowed to choose someone you knew of before this week!

Week 10: #LearningFromMyself

It's now week 10 of the #PositivityPatrol challenge - which means it's been way longer than this since this situation started, and now is a good time to reflect on your feelings and experiences. Write a letter to yourself before this was your reality. Tell yourself what you would have needed to know before this all started, and what you have learned about yourself. Share your letter, part of it or the envelope if you're not comfortable sharing the content, and post it with #LearningFromMyself #PositivityPatrol.
