We are the leading charity for girls and young women in Wales. Thanks to our amazing 4,000 volunteers, we deliver life-changing adventures and opportunities to over 18,000 girls aged from 5 to 25. We give girls a VOICE and have done for over 100 years!
We’ve listened to all our girls, volunteers and friends and are launching our new ‘Being Our Best’ programme…
What an exciting time to be part of this amazing organisation. At the end of 2015, we drew together thoughts and ideas from Members across Girlguiding Cymru to develop a strategic plan for the next five years. This plan defines where we want to be in Girlguiding in Wales by 2021, what we plan to do to get there and how our actions support Girlguiding UK’s plans.
Guides is our section for girls aged 10 to 14 and by becoming part of a worldwide community of girls who learn together and share skills and experiences, Guides have the chance to get out there and do something really different.
Members take part in a wide range of exciting activities at their regular meetings, and at special events or holidays. Girls can get involved in anything from adventure sports to performing arts, travel and taking part in community action projects.
Guides work together in small groups or ‘Patrols’ and, with the support of an adult Leader, choose and run some of the activities themselves using Go for It resource packs.
The Guide programme is divided into five areas:
discovery of new experiences and challenges
skills and relationships
Girls can extend their knowledge and skills by working towards Guide Interest Badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Film lover to Independent living. They can also gain Challenge badges that recognise their participation in guiding over a period of time. The badges build towards the Baden-Powell Challenge Award, named in honour of the founder of Guiding.
