About Girl Guides

Girl Guides Australia is one of the largest organisations in Australia for girls and young women. It provides leadership and personal skills development to its 30,000 members, including 22,000 youth members.

We provide a non-formal educational program that is dynamic and flexible while offering values based training in life skills, decision making and leadership. The Australian Guide Program is delivered to girls by trained volunteer leaders.

We are:

  • a not-for-profit organisation that involves volunteers at all levels of its operations;
  • an organisation that involves volunteers in its work to enable our members to gain maximum benefit from the unique knowledge and skills volunteers are able to offer.

Our Mission is to empower girls and young women to grow into confident, self respecting, responsible community members.

Our aspiration is to be Australia’s leading organisation for girls and young women in leadership and personal development.
