Senior Section

The Senior Section is the section of Girlguiding UK for young women aged 14 to 26.

Unlike other sections of Girlguiding UK, there are lots of different ways that you can become a member of this section.

You might be a:

  • Ranger – traditionally the next age group up from Guides with activities based on the Look Wider programme
  • Young Leader – helping run meetings for other sections of Girlguiding
  • Member of a Senior Section unit participating in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme
  • Lone Senior Section member – there may not be a group meeting near you but you can still be a member of Senior Section and take part in activities in other areas
  • In4mer – working as a Peer Educator on subjects relevant to younger members
  • Junior Council member- representing youth members at senior council level and putting forward their views
  • Guide member of SSAGO – often found in universities as a joint society with Scouts
  • Appointment Holder (under 26) – someone who has expertise in, and provides advice on, a specific subject such as Camp Adviser.
  • Member of the Trefoil Guild (under 26)

You might fit into one of these categories or you might fit into lots. Whichever applies to you, you are still a member of the Senior Section and can take advantage of any Senior Section opportunities that become available, including representing Girlguiding UK internationally, being a member of a Junior Council, completing your Queen’s Guide Award and attending conferences and weekend events such as Innovate.

Members of the Senior Section wear a uniform which is appropriate for the group they belong to and are able to make a Promise and wear a Promise badge.
