Girl Guides Australia is part of a world-wide voluntary organisation which promotes and encourages the development of girls and women. Our Mission is to enable girls and women to grow into confident, self respecting, responsible community members. Girls and women over the age of 5 are invited to join us.
The Australian Guide Program provides girls and young women with a sense of purpose, belonging and achievement. It is a non-formal education program providing leadership and personal skill development, delivered by trained volunteer Leaders.
The Program is based on the view of the Founder, Lord Baden-Powell, that the 'activities, while delighting girls', should also give them 'a course of education outside the school' in four areas:
1. Character and intelligence
2. Skill and handicraft
3. Physical health and hygiene
4. Service for others and fellowship
Australian Guide Program has these focal points:
PHYSICAL - Giving girls opportunities to become fit, healthy and strong
PRACTICAL - Enabling girls to learn skills that will help them throughout their lives
PEOPLE - Helping girls to develop friendships, and skills at understanding and caring for others
SELF - Giving girls opportunities to grow by challenging themselves and learning to lead.
The Australian Guide Program helps to develop skills for life.
