What do adults in guiding do?

Guiding for Young Women (18-30)

Be part of a community of young women choosing their own path. It’s all about fun, skills, and unforgettable experiences.

Whether you’re looking for adventure, to travel the world, build your skills or simply have fun with new friends, there’s a place in Girlguiding for you.

Choose your pathway

There are loads of opportunities for members aged 18 to 30 to choose from. They fit into seven themed pathways. You can follow one particular pathway. Or, because we’re all different, mix and match to create a new path just for you. As well as the seven pathways, you can access learning and achieve awards. And for when you just want to socialise, there’s a range of fun opportunities to make new friends and catch up with old ones.

Whatever you decide to do, you’ll be joining a community of women choosing their own path and shaping the future for us all.

Girlguiding isn’t just for girls. In total, Girlguiding in the UK have around 100,000 adult volunteers and supporters.

Help girls to build confidence, have adventures, learn new skills and have fun – no matter your experience, background or how much time you have spare.

We offer everyone support, specialised training and the opportunity to develop new skills, meet new people and have fun.

There are many volunteer roles in guiding. Many volunteers give their time as Leaders, Assistant Leaders or Unit Helpers. Other volunteers take on administrative responsibilities, or even maintenance on an occasional basis.

Our County welcomes volunteers of all backgrounds, ages, cultures, and abilities. We are flexible and volunteering can be arranged to fit around a busy lifestyle.
