The Queen’s Guide award is a challenging programme packed full of fun outdoor adventures and community action. It’s the highest award you can work towards in Girlguiding and gives you the chance to develop your skills while supporting your local community.
This is open to members aged 16-30 and must be completed within three years from the start date or before your 31st birthday, whichever is sooner.
This is not just a great achievement to share with other members, potential employers, universities and colleges will also be impressed with your accomplishment. It will show them that you’ve challenged yourself and achieved significant goals across a range of different disciplines.
The programme can also be matched with activities you’re already doing as a member, meaning you can get more than one award for the challenges you’re taking on.
The award is based on challenging yourself and participation and is split into five sections:
If you’re working towards your Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) you could do one residential to count towards both awards – you just need to make sure it’s long enough! Check with both your Queen’s Guide award coordinator and DofE adviser to make sure they are happy with your plans.
