travelling 2013

As an organisation we are dedicated to promoting equality and diversity, so helping young people gain a better understanding of other cultures and worldwide issues is really important to us.

Our international programme provides exciting opportunities for girls and young women to travel abroad and the chance to make international friends from here in the UK.

One of the best experiences we have in guiding is meeting and making friends with members from other countries.

Terms defined


International Opportunity weekends/days are run for girls and adults to find out more and  also about upcoming trips. They are organised at County, Region and UK level, usually held in September.
