1. Activities that promote education all
All activities of Girl Guides/Girl Scouts promote
education, be it camping, service projects or a
patrol activity. The “learning by doing” method
complements formal education methods. It is
value-based, full of fun and encourages
innovation. No wonder the effects last longer!
2. Learn to be a leader and a follower
The Patrol, with the “Patrol Leader” and “Patrol
Second” , is a group of about six girls. The main
Girl Guide/Girl Scout activities are carried out
within this group. This encourages team work with
progressive leadership. Girls get a chance to learn,
have fun and be themselves within this setup.
3. Traditions that have stood strong for
The Promise, Law, Trefoil, Motto of “Be
Prepared”, World Song, Taps, Knots, the Good
Turn, Reflections and many others are all part of
the tradition that have been enjoyed by about 250
million girls and young women for over a century.
They have been passed on and are still carried on
by more than 10 million members.
4. Be Part of a Global Family
With 10 million members in 145 countries, each
member has a sister and a home in every part of
the world! With 4 World Centres in Switzerland,
Mexico, UK and India, a holiday is never hard to
plan. The “family” meets once every three years at
the World Conference.
5. A Chance to be an Advocate
Let your voice be heard about issues that affect
girls and young women. The World Association of
Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) actively
takes a stand on many issues that affect its
members and encourages its members to be the
“Voice of Girls and Young Women”. WE CARE!!!
