Leadership & Programme Ideas

Programme & Activities

Being a reliable team player, learning how to lead, developing a sense of well-being – guiding offers all of this to girls and more.

The activities and adventures that girls experience through their programme help them to learn about themselves and gain the skills and confidence to realise their dreams. The specialist frameworks and practical guidance collected together here help leaders and volunteers to provide girls with a programme that supports their development.
