Who are Guides?Guide

Guides are girls aged 10 – 14 years old. The number of units in Wales is good but we could do with more Leaders in some areas. Could you volunteer?

What do we do?

Being a Guide is all about learning new skills, making your own decisions and having fun. Guiding provides a safe environment to explore new possibilities and achieve personal goals while making friends and having adventures. And it’ up to each Guide to work out which opportunities are relevant for her, whether it’s improving her football skills, party planning or learning about independent living.

Guide Facts

  • Guides work together in Patrols
  • They elect their own Patrol Leader and are encouraged to plan their own activities.
  • Patrols provide a ready-made group of friends and helps the girls to feel that they belong to something special.
  • Any girl aged ten to fourteen who wishes to, can become a Guide.
  • Each Guide chooses the top she wants to wear from the options available in the Guide wear collection. This choice allows Guides to be themselves but also makes them feel part of the unit.

The Guide Promise

I promise that I will do my best:
To be true to myself and develop my beliefs,
