Update from Community Development Officer
Come and Try Days
We have seen many successful Come and Try days running throughout the year. These days are a great opportunity to share the experiences available at Girl Guides, to celebrate and to have fun!
Whilst 9 of our 15 Regions received funding to support these events through the Get Going Clubs funding, at State Office we have been working on a toolkit to support anyone who would like to run a Come and Try Day. These resources are designed to assist you with planning, budgeting, promotion and evaluation. We are currently reviewing these resources and are excited to share them with you. For now, please enjoy a sneak peek at the editable poster
. If you have a Come and Try Day coming up or are thinking about hosting one, please do not hesitate to contact Caitlin at firstname.lastname@example.org
Editable/Digital Marketing Resources
We would love to hear from you about what resources you need on the ground. With the environment and sustainability a key focus, many school newsletters and traditional flyers are becoming obsolete due to digital promotion. Please share with us your thoughts on what editable or digital resources would assist you with promoting Girl Guides to your local community, please send your ideas to Caitlin at email@example.com
Dream Big Project
Jessica Kahl, a former Girl Guide in Rockhampton and Civil Engineer founded the Dream Big Project to inspire more girls to enter the field of engineering. The Dream Big Project provides female student from Year 10 to 12 an opportunity to develop their understanding of what it is to be an engineer and the rewarding job prospects on offer in a girls only space.
Jessica was inspired to begin this project after being the only girl who graduated from her engineering course in Rockhampton. Her message is “To any girls considering engineering, you have endless opportunities. Engineering is innovation. It is creativity.” Working with CQUniversity, Jessica has been delivering the Dream Big Project since 2015 and is currently working on expanding the program into South East Queensland. She is passionate about connecting with Girl Guides and inspiring more girls to pursue a career in engineering. We will keep you updated as this project expands into your area.
