Girls can gain self-confidence and a free patch through 'Free Being Me'


Did you know that six out of 10 girls stop doing what they love because they feel bad about the way they look?
GSUSA and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) are teaming up with Dove to address that issue by launching the Free Being Me campaign, a global leadership program designed to give girls a safe space to strengthen their self-confidence.
Girls ages 7-14 use the It's Your Story, Tell It! Journeys, along with the Free Being Me curriculum, to explore issues of beauty and body confidence and build their leadership skills. 

Girls who complete the Free Being Me activities and a Take Action project receive a Free Being Me patch! The program and offer expires March 31, so get started today! 

Here's how to participate: 

  • Download the program curriculum on the Free Being Me website
  • Then, request your patches by contacting Holly Barrett, Girl Event Coordinator, at hbarrett@gswpa.org, or 800-248-3355. This offer expires March 31, 2016.
