Mapping Community Impact across the Squirrels badges

In November 2022, the first Community Impact forum was held exclusively for Squirrel leaders to feedback on how to make Community Impact easier for Squirrels and how easily it can form part of the programme.

From this, volunteers asked that the activities available on the Activity finder for Squirrels be mapped across the Squirrels badge programme. The aim:

  • Highlight how Community Impact can be part of all areas of the Squirrels programme and is not just linked to the Local Superhero activity badge or Community Impact staged badge.
  • Provide a list of activities that count as Community Impact for Squirrels and can be done throughout the year.

Currently on the Squirrels Activity finder there are over 100 activities that are part of the Squirrels programme and count towards Community Impact . Below are all activities that example Community Impact in Squirrels when doing Squirrels badges.
