As a Girl
As a Guide you are a member of an organisation with over 10 million members and you can become involved in a wide range of exciting activities, from outdoor challenges and camping, learning new skills, to community action projects and international travel.
But there’s more to being a Guide than just having a good time. Guiding provides opportunities for you to:
- Be challenged by new experiences.
- Think for yourself and make decisions.
- Undertake teamwork and acquire leadership skills.
- Develop self-awareness, self-respect and self-confidence.
- Develop personal values.
- Do your best.
- Contribute to society.
Being a Guide is all about learning new skills, making new friends and helping others. You will be encouraged to achieve your own personal goals through a flexible program with support from your Leader. You will also have the opportunity to work for a wide variety of badges and perhaps gain a Peak achievement award. If you are not able to join with a Unit near your home we have a group of Guides known as Lone Guides who meet via mail and email.
