Pack your bag and get ready to roam

As a member of Girlguiding, you’re also part of the largest women’s organisation in the world – the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

This means that as well as adventure, challenge and personal development in the UK, our offer for young women also includes opportunities to travel overseas. And take part in guiding activities with women from across the world.
