Keep the Girlguiding excitement going over summer!
Whether your unit has wrapped things up for the summer or you’re getting ready for your end of term celebrations, here are some top tips to keep parents and your girls excited about Girlguiding over the holidays.
1. Say it with social media
Does your unit have a social media account? Posting throwback pictures whenever you can over the summer period of your 2018 highlights so far is a great way to remind parents of all the fantastic activities their daughter got stuck in to and get them excited for next term. It also gives parents of girls in the sections below a taste of what’s to come which could in turn encourage them to bring their daughter back next term.
2. Spread the word about international adventures
Are any girls from your local area going on international trips during the summer break? Sharing social media posts from our Twitter account about these adventures is another brilliant way to help spread the word about exciting opportunities members can get involved with. Why not ask your Guides where they would like to go and let us know?
3. Keep in touch
Let parents know what you’ve got in store for girls next term by writing them a letter – check out this template you can follow on Girlguiding’s website. Although the new programme hasn’t launched yet you could still mention any days out or camping trips you’ve got planned after summer. This will keep parents – and their daughters – excited for what’s to come next.
4. Stay up to date with what’s new
It’s not long now until the new programme is launched on 21 July so keep checking our Twitter and Facebook for updates you can share locally. Reminding new volunteers, parents and members that there’s a brand new programme full of fresh new activities and badges coming soon will help drum up excitement and keep everyone intrigued about what’s to come.
