Remote international experiences

Taking part in international adventures is one of the most exciting things about being in Girlguiding

With lots of online and remote activities on offer, you can take part in international experiences without ever leaving your home country. 

Remote experiences

Being part of WAGGGS means that were connected to a global sisterhood of ten million members across 150 countries.

Our online international offer provides a space for young and adult members to connect with others in the guiding community overseas. You’ll have the chance to develop a deeper sense of cultural awareness and respect for others through adventures at your unit meeting, regional or national events.

Unit level opportunities

Pen pals via email or post

Becoming international pen pals with someone through guiding can be a great way to make new friends and learn about another culture. You can find our guidance on making international pen pals on our webpage.

Online unit meetings or video calls

Getting online can be a fantastic way to connect with other WAGGGS members across the world. Why not host an online unit meeting and invite an international group to join you? Or you can join a unit meeting hosted by a Girl Guide or Girl Scouts group in another country. 

You can find contact details for Guiding Associations around the world on the WAGGGS website. Make sure you've read our policy and guidance on staying safe online.
