The first step in the program, when a girl comes to see guides, is that she prepares to make her promise. She learns to be a guide, including learning the promise of the guide and the law, participating in a good tour every day for a week, learning the IGG flag and wearing the guide`s uniform. Once she has completed these and other tasks and has been attending meetings for at least eight weeks, she is registered as a guide and receives her first badge – her promise pin. The promise is not to be perfect or the best in everything – it`s about trying new challenges and reaching your best personal level. Guiding gives girls of all ages the opportunity to try new things and develop their skills. Scouts are girls between the ages of 12 and 14. They focus on community service, leadership and camping. In Pathfinder units, girls are very independent and plan many camps, district camps and meetings. From time to time, Pathfinder sparks and brownies help and earn a badge called „Spark/Brownie Helper”. Units are also usually very small, so Pathfinders are usually close friends and welcome new members a lot.
Their uniforms were green T-shirts or white T-shirts with the sleeves of opposite color, then uniform blue with green inserts on the collar and sleeves. They now wear the same navy blue t-shirt as the other branches. There is an optional white tie with green maple leaves and an optional navy blue badge belt. Like the other branches, they follow the Girls First program, which includes 8 program areas – Guiding Together, Outdoors, Developing Skills, Exploring Identities, Experimenting and Creating, Being Good, Connecting and Questioning, and Acting. Each programme area has three themes. Girls can obtain their citizenship certificate, community service award, and Canada Cord, which includes badges, first aid, planning and leading an event or camp, activities with other branches, and obtaining the citizenship certificate and community service award. The Cord of Canada requires a great commitment to leadership to be deserved. Any girl listed as a Girl Scout in the Girl Guides is eligible to receive her Canada Cord Award, regardless of how long she has been a member of Girl Guides of Canada.

Girl Guide cookies have undergone many recipe changes, but the goals remain the same. Girl Guides Australia`s mission is to empower girls and young women to discover their potential as leaders of their world. The Salvation Army adopted the guide as part of its girls` program in 1937, when it was officially affiliated with the organization. Although the military distanced itself from the program in 1998, it continues to offer its daughters some form of guidance. With over 10 million members in 152 countries, Girl Guides Australia is part of the world`s largest volunteer organisation for girls and young women. We are a founding member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and are committed to the Asia-Pacific region. WAGGGS is a movement that offers non-formal education to girls and young women to develop leadership and life skills through personal development, challenge and adventure. Girl guides and Girl Scouts learn by doing. Helping has always been an important part of leadership. Girlguiding members help their friends, family, girls from other countries or people around them. They also express themselves on topics that they are passionate about and respect each other. The patrol system was originally defined by founder Baden-Powell as the method to be used in units.
This is the method by which guides are trained in self-management and leadership. It can be adapted to the different needs of girls. It can be used as a management tool of Girl Guides Australia. Leaders adhere to a set of laws that provide a framework and philosophy for life. Donate to us and you will invest in the future of thousands of girls The Brownies are 7 and 8 year old girls. Brownies aim to develop a sense of identity and a positive relationship with others by participating in a varied program of activities.
