October 11th is the International Day of the Girl. The theme for the 2015 International Day of the Girl challenge is Reach Your Potential. The challenge Instant meeting includes a grab bag of different activities including careers in STEM, gender specific toys, road maps to success, and women in non-traditional jobs.
It sounds like a new version of the crest is in the works for 2015 as well so if you did the challenge with your unit in 2014 or 2013, you can do it again this year.
The International Day of the Girl is the first of five dates Girl Guides is calling Make a Difference Days. Watch out for the others later this year… International Day of Persons with Disabilities (December 3), World Thinking Day (February 22), International Women’s Day (March 8) and National Mental Health Week (May 2-8).
