Senior Section is for young women aged 14 to 25.
An exciting and flexible programme with a huge variety of challenges and opportunities for personal development – sure to impress universities and potential employers alike!
Through the Look Wider programme, Senior Section members are encouraged to try out new things from a wide range of activities and challenges on offer. From learning a language or playing a musical instrument to running a marathon, camping in the wilds or volunteering overseas. The programme is flexible and scalable, going from taster level all the way to gaining a qualification that is recognised outside guiding.
Senior Section 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.
There are many international opportunities open to Senior Section members, ranging from attending guiding events abroad to volunteering on community projects in developing countries.
Members also have the unique opportunity to become Peer Educators, trained to run sessions on issues that affect girls and young women, such as binge drinking, bullying, stress management and sexual health.
Or make their voices heard by joining the guiding delegation at the British Youth Council, for example, or having a say in the future of guiding by attending one of our Innovate meetings.
