Senior Section

The Senior Section is for young women aged 14 to 25. It offers an exciting and flexible programme with a huge variety of challenges and opportunities for personal development – sure to impress universities and potential employers!

The Senior Section Programme
The Look Wider programme offers a range of activities and challenges and motivates members to try out new things – it could be learning a language, playing a musical instrument, running a marathon, camping in the wilds or volunteering overseas. It is flexible and participants can take their chosen activities as far as they wish, from taster level all the way to gaining a qualification that is recognised outside guiding.

Awards and Qualifications
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.

International Opportunities
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 initiative, 4. Young women can become Peer Educators and train to run sessions on issues that affect girls and young women such as binge drinking, bullying, stress management and sexual health.

They can also make their voices heard by, for example, joining the guiding delegation at the British Youth Council, or having a say in the future of guiding by attending one of our Innovate meetings.

The Senior Section Website
Travel to far-away countries, gain the prestigious Queen’s Guide Award or take on a Leadership role within our organisation – the opportunities are endless. Whatever you want to achieve or experience you can do it through The Senior Section.
