How Much Do You Value Friendship?

Now things are ‘back to normal’ it is great that we have been able to return to the complete Guiding programme. However, some of our young people continue to be deeply affected.

For some girls, making good friends can be difficult. Many girls face being teased for no apparent reason, feeling left out and on the outside of jokes. For 11½-year-old Maisie, this problem was real – her ‘friend’ group at school wasn’t working that well.

You can read Maisie’s full story here.

Maisie decided to make a positive change in her life. She realised that it was at Guides where she was most happy and committed herself to Guiding where she knew she had a supportive group of people around her. She pushed herself to join in more at the local guide group and started to feel as though she was being included, listened to, and valued as an individual.
