Our Girls Can Change the World

Girl Guide Guiders Having Fun

This weekend marks Global Youth Service Day, an annual campaign that celebrates the millions of children and youth around the world who improve their communities through service and service-learning.

Service – giving back to our communities and the world at large – has been a core value of Guiding from the beginning.  For over one  hundred years, GGC Members have been helping out, pitching-in and lending a hand. This year’s National Service Project is all about empowering our youth to learn and take action on issues that they care about.

GGC salutes all our girl Members who make a difference in their community every day.  Here are just some of the ways our awesome young women are making a difference:

  • Making a difference in Africa: Grade 10 student and Girl Guide Jeslyn Simpson is off to Kenya this summer to working help build classrooms for a school that is under construction nearby and planting trees at a local tree nursery.
  • Guide campaign provides basics for girls in Kenya: The 3rd Telegraph Trail Unit in B.C. is participating in the worldwide Panties with Purpose campaign to help supply panties and sanitary pads to 6,000 girls in Kenya.
  • First Oxford Mills Pathfinders collecting food donations for Salvation Army: Ontario  Pathfinders gather food donations to take to their local Salvation Army before the Easter weekend.
