February Learner Profile and Action Focus

Communicator Advocacy

In IB PYP, being a Communicator means we understand and express ideas and information confidently and creatively in more than one language and in a variety of modes of communication. Being a communicator may spring from new learning and result in Action in the form of Advocacy – seeking to ensure that people, particularly those who are most vulnerable in society, can have their voice heard on issues that are important to them. As a Communicator and an Advocate you may want to share your learning and concerns with family, friends, and all who will listen; send letters and emails to local and global officials to communicate your ideas; write articles and stories about issues important to you; give a speech and teach others about your cause; attend a speech or talk to listen to other perspectives; or maybe join others with similar passions to get your voices heard!

Talk with your family about what values your family holds and explore issues and topics that align with these values. Then do some research together to see how you can communicate your opinions or bring awareness to that issue by becoming Communicators and for your cause! 

The Campaign Continues… Troop 3195 Needs Your Help!
Girl Scout Troop 3195 Become Communicators & Advocates for Girls Worldwide!

Caleb Greenwood Girl Scout Troop 3195 has become advocates for girls world-wide after learning about the daily struggle many girls in impoverished countries endure to get drinking water for their families. The Troop learned that

some girls travel many miles and take many hours to fill containers of water that is often dirty and unsafe for drinking. By providing clean, accessible drinking water through the charitable organization called The Water Project communities receive healthy drinking water and girls have more time to go to school and focus on their studies.

Come hear about and participate in Troop 3195’s campaign!
