Girl Guides Western Australia is a member organisation of Girl Guides Australia, and of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). With a membership of over 10 million girls and women in 150 countries, WAGGGS is the largest all-female organisation in the world!
Guiding in Western Australia was established in 1915. Since then, we've grown into one of the largest youth organisation for girls and young women in Western Australia, with over 2000 youth members and over 500 volunteer Leaders and adult members. Girl Guides Western Australia is made up of 15 Regions throughout both metropolitan and rural areas. Regions usually include a number of multi-aged Units, with youth
members aged 5 to 17, Leaders (18+) and Junior
Leaders (14-17) in various roles.
