Community Hub for Growth

Welcome to the Community Hub for Growth

Following the work of the Growth Round Table, the Community Hub for Growth was developed. Here Member Organizations can strengthen relationships across the WAGGGS regions, share ideas and support each other on our journey to build the global Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting Movement and support girls everywhere to be the best they can be!

On the Community Hub for Growth you can share and explore strategies, resources, training and updates from Member Organizations and experts around the world on growth, management styles, fundraising strategies, partnerships and more.

The next webinar will be a repeat of the diversity training by Sarah Boddey and Melanie Ford on 16th March at 12pm (GMT). For an update on how the first session went see below: 

On Wednesday 24th February at 12pm (GMT) the Community Hub for Growth held its second webinar on the theme of diversity. Facilitated by Sarah Boddey (Growth Round Table) and Melanie Ford (GUK), the webinar featured Sarah’s 7 Step Process towards diversifying the Movement and included a best-practice scenario from Melanie on how local Guide Leaders had succeeded in bringing Guiding to one of the UK’s most marginalized and hardest to reach groups of girls from the Traveller Community. MOs from Denmark to Sierra Leone joined to exchange strategies to make Guiding accessible to all girls in a truly participatory skill-sharing session of questions and answers.
