Guiding in South Australia was established in 1919 due to the demand from girls wanting to become Girl Guides. Today, Girl Guides South Australia is the largest youth organisation for girls and young women in South Australia with almost 2000 youth members and 500 volunteer Leaders and adult Members.
Girl Guides South Australia is made up of 11 Regions, which contain over 37 Districts throughout South Australia. Each District may be made up of several multi-aged Units, with youth
members aged 5 to 17, Leaders (18+) and Junior
Leaders (14-17) in various roles.
Girl Guides South Australia is an organisation that creates safe and friendly environments for children and young people where they can:
- feel safe and are protected from harm
- have a say in planning activities and other decisions affecting them
- are listened to
- are respected
- have their best interests considered and upheld
We are an organisation that welcomes and actively seeks members from all racial, ethnic, religious and socio-economic groups. Girl Guides South Australia is a member organisation of Girl Guides Australia and a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).
