Achievement consists of treating the curriculum according to the standards and requirements established by the club guidelines. Badges and awards are effective motivators for girls. They provide incentive for completing a program and a sense of accomplishment upon completion. Awards are a means of encouraging girls to hide God's Word in their hearts. Achievement programs in a club setting provide a sense of belonging as girls work together. It is important to remember that badges and awards are a means, not an end. What achievement offers:

  • Helps the girls gain a sense of accomplishment and confidence.
  • Participating in local and district recognition events helps girls feel a part of a larger community of clubs.
  • Provides symbols to accompany the knowledge they have gained through awards.
  • Girls take part in a guided trackable charted out program that helps them with reading and learning the Scriptures..
  • All they are required to learn will enrich their faith and serve as tools as they grow older.

Whatever your choice, achievement or non-achievement, you have many options for how to personalize your club, make it enjoyable to the girls in your club, and most importantly help you to disciple and mentor them.
