Our youth steering group, Amplify
Amplify makes sure that girls’ voices are heard and consulted at the highest levels of our organisation
We put girls’ voices at the heart of everything we do.
In 2022, we recruited girls aged 12-18 to a youth steering group called Amplify. Their job is to feedback on the work that we're doing, and make sure that girls’ voices are heard and consulted at the highest levels of Girlguiding.
