Opportunities and awareness

Stay up-to-date with the opportunities that guiding provides for you, your unit and your team

When you know what's going on in guiding, you and your girls get a better experience

Knowing what's going on in guiding at a local, national and international level - and exploring the latest news with your unit - makes for good guiding. Keep your programme interesting by staying aware of opportunities open to girls and encouraging your unit to access them.

Do some reading

  • Subscribe to - and read - Girlguiding and local guiding e-newsletters.
  • Take guiding magazine with you when you're taking the train or bus or in a cafe. Use any spare five minutes to get reading.

Share opportunities with girls

Look out for new resources and activities

  • Find out what new resources are available, including free ones! You could run a meeting using activity ideas from guiding magazine.
  • Ask guests to run a session for your unit. You could try Peer Educators from '4', Girlguiding's peer education initiative, the Duke of Edinburgh's Award volunteers or young women working on their Queen's Guide Award.
