WAGGGS Leadership Development Programmes

WAGGGS provides leadership development through a range of development programmes, leadership resources and by working directly with our Member Organizations

Our aim is to provide a structured, supported and experiential approach to developing the potential of new, existing and potential leaders. We work at an international, regional and national level building leadership capacity to support strong and inspiring Member Organizations.

WAGGGS Leadership Development Programme

The WAGGGS Leadership Development Programme (WLDP) provides opportunities for individuals and existing leaders to develop international leadership skills and experiences to meet their needs and the needs of the organization at national, regional and world level.

It actively develops potential leaders, specifically young women, for current and future roles in WAGGGS and in their personal and professional lives.

There are four characteristics which in combination provide a unique leadership perspective and are central to the programme:

  1. Values based learning
  2. Non-formal education
  3. Inter-generational sharing
  4. Inter-cultural experience and exchange

The Girl Guide and Girl Scout educational method is woven into our leadership philosophy and delivery.

At a national level…

The National Leadership Development Programme (NLDP) was launched in 2013 and marks an ongoing commitment to cascade elements of the WLDP to Member Organizations. 

The aim of the NLDP is to build leadership capacity for our Member Organizations and our Regions. It supports volunteer leaders in their roles and responsibilities as well as promotes personal development. 

We take existing trainers through a comprehensive training in how to develop and deliver the NLDP at national or local level. The core areas covered aim to support trainers in their delivery of the NLDP to leaders and to train other trainers to deliver the material. Selected WLDP modules are used based on the needs of the organization.
