Guiding Structure

Guiding Structure

At the local level, girls meet with other similarly aged girls in small groups called Units. A number of these units together are called a District. A District will usually comprise Units for girls of different ages.

Districts in a geographic area form a Region; for example the ACT & South East NSW Region. Girl Guides NSW and ACT is made up of 14 Regions.

Girl Guides Australia is the national Girl Guide organisation, which is represented in each Australian State, the ACT and the Northern Territory.

Internationally, Girl Guides Australia is a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts; the largest organisation for girls and young women with over 12 million members around the world.
