Growing guiding is about increasing the number of girls who join and stick with guiding. It isn’t separate to normal guiding – all our members can play a role in helping us reach more people, keep our amazing volunteers and girls with us and deliver the best possible guiding experience.
There are loads of ways to do this, from making sure our volunteers feel valued to setting up eye-catching stalls at community events or shouting about the fun things your unit gets up to on social media. And of course, at the heart of it is great guiding – that’s what keeps girls and volunteers with us!
It’s really all about sharing your passion for what you do – and there’s loads of advice, materials and support available to help.
For young members, the Let’s grow challenge badge is a fun way to get girls involved in spreading the word about guiding.
