The Brownie Programme is based on You, the Community, and the World
You: Brownies develop confidence and self-esteem through having new experiences and learning new skills. They build friendships and learn to share and cooperate with others by working together in small groups called ‘Sixes’. They get a say in what happens at Brownies through discussions or ‘Pow-wows’, which help them develop decision-making skills and the ability to put their views across.
Community: We encourage girls to become active citizens by helping them understand and participate in their communities. This could mean raising money for charities or visiting local places of interest.
World: Our programme encourages girls to learn about the wider world. Activities could involve celebrating a festival from a different culture, finding out about endangered animal species, or learning how they can combat climate change.
Events: We ask for a permission form for events away from our meeting place. A blank for is attached:
