Saluting Their Service 2020 - Australian Defence Force
In 2020 for Anzac Day, Girl Guides can conduct research or undertake activities focusing on the Australian Defence Force during times of war.
Through this commemorative challenge Guides are encouraged to reflect on the service, sacrifice and bravery of our Defence Force Members who have served in wars, conflicts and peace keeping operations.

Women In Transport
The National Program Team in partnership with Transport Women Australia Ltd have developed a Program resource, activities and a colouring book to encourage girls to explore a range of activities focusing on transport in Australia.
Women are a vital part of an industry that moves people, food and goods around the country and is a necessary part of both industry but also our daily life.
The program resource Helping to move Australia: Women in Transport provides a range of ideas for girls to pursue including careers, art, science and road safety and they may choose to work towards their Create a Challenge Wheels badge as part of the program.
Women from Transport Women Australia are also keen to visit units and share their experiences and join in activities with the girls as part of this program.
Girls working on the program can also receive a free Activities and colouring book available from the National Program Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Look Wider Still
This pack is for Guide Units that enjoyed the World Environment Day Activity pack and would like further activities on this topic. These extension activities provide ideas to continue learning about the environment along with ways to encourage further action and / or share knowledge.
Advocacy Action Award
The Advocacy Action Award is a badge Guide Units of any age can work on each year during the October – December period. To earn the badge you must complete one clause from each of the three headings: Educate, Speak Out and Take Action. Activity suggestions are included in this kit.
Last year, WAGGGS shared with member organisations a volunteer initiated project of a wall poster with logos of the WAGGGS Member Organisations in Asia Pacific Region.
The wall poster is now complete and available to download and print: Wagggs Poster Asia Pacific Region .
All the policy and procedure relating to Girl Guides can be found on the Guide Lines website www.guidelinesforgirlguides.org.au

We provide leadership training and support our volunteers to develop new skills which are transferable to other areas of life.
