Senior Section

How to join us

The Senior Section is for young women aged 14 to 25.

This section offers young women an exciting and flexible programme with a huge variety of challenges and opportunities for personal development – sure to impress universities and potential employers!

Members can undertake a wide range of awards and qualifications. These include the Leadership qualification, which helps them in running guiding units for younger girls, the internationally-recognised Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, and other prestigious awards specific to guiding, including the Queen’s Guide Award.

There are many international opportunities open to Senior Section members. They range from attending guiding events abroad to volunteering on community projects in developing countries.

Members can also take part in our successful peer education programme. Young women can become Peer Educators trained to run sessions on issues that affect girls and young women and lead sessions to educate others.
