Coming soon – a new and improved offer for 14-18 year olds
Over 4,000 Guides and Senior Section have completed surveys about what they wanted from Girlguiding.
Their input showed us we needed to change The Senior Section as girls lives have changed, and support young women to find the roles and opportunities they are looking for today.
The transformation of The Senior Section is taking place over 3 years. We spent 2017 doing consultation and research, and in 2018 we revealed two new offers for our members aged 14-30.
Rangers – a new section for girls aged 14-18 – will replace The Senior Section from the start of the academic year 2019/20. Rangers will wear a brand new uniform, go to regular meetings, work on activities together and earn badges and awards.
Young women aged over 18 told us they wanted to develop their skills through exciting opportunities and experiences but that the traditional set up of regular meetings was difficult to make work alongside university, jobs and training. So we’ll be helping you find new ways to grow within guiding.
You can choose from a huge range of ways to be a part of Girlguiding Caithness as a member of The Senior Section.
You could become a peer educator and empower other young women to bust the body myth and have confidence in themselves or pass on what you’ve learned through guiding to younger girls by becoming a young leader or leader.
You could also work towards a prestigious achievement like the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, the Chief Guide’s Challenge or the Queen’s Guide award – a fantastic way to challenge yourself, help others and add even more to your CV.
Or speak out for other girls and young women as one of Girlguiding Scotland’s Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament.
Plus there is always the opportunity to take part in great events like Girlguiding Scotland’s TARTAN GIG for Guides and members of The Senior Section, or feed your travel bug by heading off on international trips and camps.
Members of The Senior Section meet in small groups or choose to stay in touch in other ways. In Caithness they meet as a group on Sundays.
