  • About power;
  • A process;
  • happens at multiple levels.
In section 4, we are looking to apply our learning from this course to our practice. To do so, we will use the WAGGGS Meaningful Youth Participation Framework.


The Youth Participation Action plan (add link to downlaod) is a tool that accompanies the MYP framework. It is designed to guide you and your team through a process to help you identify and take steps to improve your MYP practice. It is intended that you can embed the below recommendations into your Youth Participation Action Plan, alongside other actions you decide upon as a result of using the framework. WAGGGS has designated support to help you with this process. Please email Core Mission on leadingforherworld@wagggs.org


WAGGGS has created the meaningful Youth Participation Framework, which aims to help us mainstream and strengthen meaningful youth participation practices across the Movement, by drawing from existing good practice and learning from the wider youth sector.This module will run through the key elements of this model. We suggest completing the course, and then reading the document in depth.

  • Recapping what we’ve worked so far
  • Introducing the Framework
  • Indicators
  • Action Planning
  • Community of Practice

We have created a set of indicators for the WAGGGS Meaningful Youth Participation. These are based on the ‘Core Elements’ and ‘Enabling Environment’ identified within the Flower of Participation.
