Girls Guides Victoria


Girl Guides Victoria is taking guiding online, unveiling its new virtual initiative Guiding in your Pocket. To celebrate the launch of the online community movement, Girl Guides Victoria is offering complimentary 12-month memberships to both existing and new members across the state.

 

Girl Guides Victoria State Commissioner, Janelle Howell, said that the swift move to guiding online, that was made available from March 29, is essential in keeping the community connected at this challenging time.

 

"While we've had to put a pause on our face-to-face meetings, due to the current social distancing regulations, it's now more important than ever that we keep our lively community spirit bustling through Girl Guide Victoria's new virtual hub," she said.

"We see this is a necessary investment in our community, our girls and our future", Janelle added. 

 

Guiding in your Pocket gives parents of young girls aged 5-17 years a plethora of valuable online resources, providing opportunities to learn from and engage with their peers from home.

 

The girl-led Guiding non-formal educational program is based on shared leadership and decision-making at all ages. The Girl Guides Victoria TV Hub will release weekly episodes, created by girls for girls, which will provide learnings on each of their program segments – Arts, Life Skills, Outdoors, Service and STEM. 

 

Those without internet access can still take part with paper-based versions of the program available. 

 

This movement into the virtual space comes with the promise that the community will still uphold the global Guiding values and continue to empower girls and young women both in leadership and personal development.

 

Now more accessible than ever, Girl Guides Victoria are inviting Victorian young girls and women to join their community online.
