Leaders in our midst - Support the Growth of Our Girls

Case Studies:Set One – Leaders in our midst – Support the Growth of our Girls


This first set of case studies focuses in on our unit leaders across Australia. In these case studies, you will find a set of highly capable, dedicated and passionate women who are doing what they can to secure and support the future of Australian girls. Each one has different lessons to tell on what it means to be a leader in a Girl Guide unit and what it means to support girls and young women growing up in Australia today.
