Adventure. Fun. Friendship. Sounds great doesn’t it? Try something new for 2018.
Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK, with over 500,000 members.
Thanks to the dedication and support of over 100,000 amazing volunteers, we are active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities.
We build girls’confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good. We give them a space to have fun.
Girls take what they do in guiding with them as they grow up. They develop the skills and confidence that they need to reach their potential - as students, colleagues, parents, friends and citizens - and become the young women that they want to be.
Guides build brilliant friendship. Girls at Guides won’t be your average friends. They’ll be the girls who want to go on adventures with you, who encourage you to try new things and who celebrate when you’ve pushed yourself to achieve something special.
As you progress through Guides you’ll have a chance to lead small groups and support younger girls to have fun and make friends. You could even get involved in our Youth Leadership programme.
Guides is a chance to make a difference. You’ll be encouraged to speak out about what matters to you and to do something about it.
You’ll follow the Guide programme which includes interest badges - about science, cooking outdoors, films, all sorts - special activity packs and unique awards like the Baden-Powell Challenge Award, which will really help you at school and later in life.
We are for all girls.
We give girls their own space.
We give girls a voice.
We change as the lives of girls change.
