There are many activities outside of school available for girls—Girl Guides offers girls aged five to 17 something unique: access to a great variety of activities throughout the year. We help girls develop their skills in a safe environment while having fun and finding friends!
Simply, we empower girls and young women to discover their potential as leaders of their world. We like to think of it as changing the world, one Girl Guide at a time.
On behalf of Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT, my deputies—Kerrey, Shaylah, Lisa—and I, hope you enjoy having a look around our website and finding out just how we go about changing the world.
