2021, a special year
The Girl Guiding Movement in Hong Kong began in 1916. Starting from the beginning, leadership always takes an important part of Girl Guides’training. With the 105th anniversary of the Hong Kong Girl Guides approaching, let us look ahead to our future!
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) has developed the WAGGGS Leadership Model, which uses a system of 6 Leadership Mindsets as a tool to make leadership practice conscious. The model guides us to different perspectives and consciously influences our reactions, reflections, choices and behaviours. Rather than focusing on skills, knowledge and abilities, the leadership model focuses more on the development of personal values, perspectives and behaviours.
Leadership Champion is a leadership challenge programme specially designed for Girl Guides in Hong Kong by a group of young women (Leadership Architects). It aims to empower any and every girl to become a leader through learning and practising the 6 leadership mindsets continuously and to echo the mission of the Hong Kong Girl Guides Association in nurturing more young leaders for a better future.
Leadership Engineer Workshop
In developing Girl Guides into leaders, Guiders can become our“Leadership Engineers”to lead girls to begin their leadership learning journey. After attending the Leadership Engineer workshop, Guiders can organise activities and workshops about the 6 Leadership Mindsets for their Units to help their Unit members complete the stage of Leadership Learner. Guiders will also receive a badge and earn the title of Leadership Engineer upon completion of the workshop.
The Leadership Engineer workshop will introduce the 6 Leadership Mindsets and the activity booklet to prepare Guiders in supporting girls to be a leader.

The Way to Leadership Champion
The Leadership Champion programme consists of 3 stages, where girls and young women will learn at their own pace.
Stage 1: Leadership Learner
Self-directed learning: Participants complete or attend at least 1 activity or workshop in every mindset to receive a pin and earn the title of Leadership Learner, and proceed to Leadership Practitioner.
Stage 2: Leadership Practitioner
Game Day: Put the leadership mindsets into practise to complete the challenges. Participants must complete Leadership Practitioner before proceeding to Leadership Master. Upon completion of this stage, participants will receive a pin and earn the title of Leadership Practitioner.
Stage 3: Leadership Master
Creating the future: Use the leadership mindsets to plan community service projects. Upon completion of this stage, participants will receive a pin and earn the title of Leadership Master. Outstanding performers of the final presentation will earn the title Leadership Champion.
Upon completion of each stage, participants will receive a pin. The pin should be worn on the right chest of the uniform to indicate their success in completing the challenge.
