Case Studies

 

Girlguiding Scotland

Emma took part in a flexible Guiding unit over the summer, an innovative activity that used Start-up funding (through Generation Cashback) delivered by Girlguiding Scotland in the Bridgeton area of Glasgow. The girls did various activities throughout the week such as problem-solving, team building, learning how to tie knots, ‘Litter Lotto’ which made picking up litter a competition, story-telling, Taekwondo, yoga, puppetry, and a Dragon’s Den style activity which involved the girls speaking in front of  the group. When asked to reflect on her experiences of the unit and what she got out of it, she described having fun, playing games, making new friends, learning new skills such as speaking in front  of a group, and getting the opportunity to visit  Loch Lomond.

 

"We learned lots of different skills, like working together as a team, building things and problem solving."

Emma, young person

Emma reported feeling confident at the end of the week and really appreciated the opportunity to have new experiences with the older girls, particularly talking in front of a group. She will soon be putting those new skills into practice again, and she thinks it has also put her in good stead for secondary school next year.
