This is a new national challenge that replaces the NEDIC Love Yourself Challenge. It covers some similar ground having the girls examine how the media shapes their perception of what it means to be a girl and builds their self esteem to counteract some of the more negative images. The challenge starts with a backgrounder for Guiders that gives you word definitions and information on eating disorders, media etc. It also includes core program connections. Then there is a separate challenge document for each branch with age appropriate activities out lined in it. Looking though the Guide challenge I’d expect it to take 3 or 4 meetings to cover the challenge well. But it covers a lot of core program areas along the way. And could make for a really meaningful month of meetings.
The activities are divided into three themes:
- Media, Society and Me
- Accepting Myself
- My Balanced Life
