The Senior Section

The Senior Section  is for young women aged fourteen to twenty five and includes Rangers, Young leaders and Adult Volunteers until their 26th Birthday.  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 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.  Other awards and qualifications available include the Leadership Qualification, which trains Senior Section members to run guiding units for younger girls, the internationally recognised Duke of Edinburgh's Scheme, and other prestigious awards specific to guiding.

Senior Section members work hard like Sarah who got her Duke of Edinburgh Gold award (read story) or Michelle who volunteered overseas.

What do young women say about the Senior Section

"Because of guiding I'm a lot more confident meeting new people, and I've got a really diverse bunch of friends because of it too", Rachel, 20.
