Guiding provides a safe environment to explore new possibilities and achieve personal goals while making friends and having adventures. And it’s up to each Guide to work out which opportunities are relevant for her, whether it’s improving her football skills, party planning or learning about independent living.
Any girl aged ten to 14 who wishes to, can become a Guide.
Guides work together in Patrols. They elect their own Patrol Leader and are encouraged to plan their own activities. Patrols provide a ready-made group of friends and helps the girls to feel that they belong to something special.
Each Guide chooses the top she wants to wear from a selection of uniform options. This choice allows Guides to be themselves but also makes them feel part of the unit.
