alt Faith Factor: Personal Progress by Paige Moore
alt I ran into an idea about doing file boxes the girls could decorate themselves and then giving them index cards in value colors for them to keep track of their value experiences and 10-hour projects. I really like the idea because the girls can use something they made their own (the file boxes) to keep track of Personal Progress. I am also going to encourage the girls to write about the value experience/value project on these color-coded cards. Then when we do Personal Progress interviews, I can have the girls bring their file boxes. It's kind of been like pulling teeth to get the girls to tell me about the value experiences they have done. I think this should be a great jump-start for the girls... (Idea by Sharon Stamps)

alt Ketchup Night - Have tator tots and ketchup. Have the girls bring their PP book and journal and they can "catch up" in doing their PP as you pull them out and do some interviews. (Idea by Mischelle)
alt "Kick off" tailgate party - We each took a couple of values (or a couple we could switch off). We split the group into four and had them rotate. I took Knowledge and Good Works. We went to the kitchen and I taught how to make a couple of quick meals that could help pass off requirements on both (learning how to cook and cooking for your family for one week). We each gave the girls a card at the end with exactly what we learned and what else needed to be done. (I do not believe in passing off a requirement completely during an activity - I always require them to do something themselves to make it PERSONAL) I think it was a good way to show that Personal Progress didn't have to be some monumental huge thing that added more stress. It was really a lot of every day things. (Heather Rich / ga04022007)

alt If Personal Progress has got you spooked (handout for Halloween) by Sara Cady
alt Last Sunday for Personal Progress thought and handout I gave out with a penny taped to it..."We were given two ends: One to think with, and one to sit on. It's up to you which you'll use more. Heads you win, Tails you lose!" the penny taped here...Use your head and choose to do Personal Progress and you will win. I handed out 2 sheets for good works and read a thought. (Idea by Laurie Farmer / ga10012007)
alt Peppermint Stick - I am giving my girls those jumbo peppermint sticks (also crook'less!) for Christmas and attaching a little card that says something like, "This peppermint stick is to remind you to "STICK TO IT" on your Personal Progress! The holiday season is the perfect time to feel the SWEETNESS of setting and achieving some great goals!" (Credit Unknown)

alt One Sunday you could have a basket filled with Hershey kisses and sticks of chewing gum. Attach a note to the basket or tell the girls before you pass the basket around that if they are [working on their Personal Progress] they can give themselves a kiss. If however, they are not working on it they can chew themselves out. (Idea by Linda Oesterreicher / ga04022007)

alt We have called a personal progress coordinator. She keeps track of all that information. The first Wed. of each month is personal progress night and each young women and her Mom/Dad have signed up to take that Wednesday night and teach us something that passes off one of THEIR personal progress goals. The girls all bring their books (most don't remember), but that's okay because we have a tracking sheet in our binders too that shows what's been done.  The last 1/2 hour of mutual we divide the girls up and we pull each of the girls out one at a time and go over their books or the things that they've done. If they bring their book and we pass stuff off they take a trip to the blessings basket (just a hodge podge of $1.00 stuff) and they get one things for each goal they've completed. We didn't go back and honor previous things done..only since the basket was implemented. This seems to help the girls get motivated.  Each first Sunday of the month the p.p coordinator gives the girls a goal to work on based on the value of the month that we are working on. This month it's Integrity #2.  If they complete their Value Projects then they get a value bag. One girl just completed her Faith and so she got a white bag filled with all white things. I'm not sure what went in there since the coordinator did it. She presented it yesterday and asked the girl not to show any of the other girls.....they were really bummed, but it peaked their curiosity. (Angela Paladeni / ga10162006)

alt We will be playing personal progress tag every Sunday. We have a "You're It!" card that is passed around.  One is for the 2nd and 4th Sunday, the other is for the 1st and 3rd Sunday.  At the very beginning we had all the girls stand up and we tagged one "You're It".  So in two weeks that Young Woman will get up during opening exercises and give a personal progress moment.  We have the girls tell what value they worked on, what they did and how they felt.  When the girl is finished, she asks the girls who haven't been tagged on this round to stand up, and she tags the next girl.

    I have a question concerning leaders and mothers working on their medallions. Do we have to do all the experiences or just the additional experiences. I was told we only had to do the additional experiences. If anyone knows please let me know.
    Thank you

  • Shauntell

    In the new book it states "Mothers may complete the same requirements as their daughters" and regarding leaders, "Leaders are encouraged to work on Personal Progress along with the young women. They may earn the Young Womanhood Recognition after they:
    • Serve for a total of one year as a Young Women leader.
    • Complete the required value experiences in each of the eight values.
    • Complete three value projects, including the project for virtue."

  • Heather Bro

    What do we do with a leader who has finished? How do we/you recognize her?

  • Suzie

    Our daughter received her YW recognition recently and we want to frame her certificate and a photo of her on that day (in one frame). Does anyone have any thing like that?

  • Heather

    Has anyone modified personal progress for young women with disabilities? We have a young woman with autism in our group. Any ideas? Thanks!

    It's near the back of the Personal Progress book and it's online, too.

  • stacy

    Im new in the YW presidency and need to prepare to welcome a new Beehive into YW and introduce her to personal progress. Does anyone have anything they use? Im thinking flip charts or a power point would help keep me on track so I dont leave anything out... Help.... Anyone??

  • Kim Baumgart

    A fun thing we have done to encourage personal progress, service projects and honor bees - I put some kind of chart up, like a game board. When a girl or leader completes and experience, service project or works towards an honor bee they get to mark one spot. For a completed project they get to mark two. When complete by the end of the month there is a treat. For example, I made a little frog who needed to get to the end of the path and if he got there I brought Froggy Floats on the last Sunday (sprite or 7up with a scoop of lime sherbet and junior mint eyes). Each month I started something new with a treat at the end of the month. We didn't keep track of who marked the spots - the idea was to encourage everyone to work together by completing their own experiences, etc. to earn the treat.

  • Kim Baumgart

    a while ago there was a post about an idea for Christmas and it included giving the girls each a pillowcase. I loved the idea, but can't remember the details - can you run it again or does anyone remember it?

    Our daughter received her YW recognition recently and we want to frame her certificate and a photo of her on that day (in one frame). Does anyone have any thing like that?

    Matt it, then you can fit both in the same frame, and it also looks really kool :-)

  • Chandra

    I remember receiving booklets as a young teen (about 18 yrs ago) about women who exemplified each of the young women values. One was Esther (integrity, I think), one was Mary, one was Eve. They had nice artwork on the front depicting each woman. Anyone remember those, and more importantly, does anyone know where I can find them?

  • Eri

    Thank you so much for posting this up i know what i can do for my personal progress 10 hour projects that i can do for others who need the blessings in my comunity. :D

  • dorohuggus

    I've recently been made YW secretary and was given a binder that goes right along with the Personal Progress book. It has spaces to write and to write out what the book asks you to do. We as a presidency found it so helpful that we ordered one for each of our girls... The only problem is that there is no Virtue section to complete the binder! Do any of you have any idea where I can find the remaining section? It doesn't say any copyright information on it at all or give credit anywhere... I'm honestly wondering if someone amazing came up with it in our stake or something. .... Please help! Let me know, thanks! -Laura

  • Sandy Williams

    I am looking for a cross stitch pattern of the Young Women Torch and Values. does anyone know where I can find one?
