GirlGuiding New Zealand

About Us

OUR MISSION IS TO EMPOWER GIRLS TO TAKE ACTION TO CHANGE THEIR WORLD. We do this by using fun, adventure and friendship to build their confidence and life skills.

GirlGuiding NZ is a non-profit organisation where girls can be girls, where they will discover their passions, contribute to their communities and form friendships in a safe and positive environment.

YOU BE THE GUIDE

GirlGuiding is a place where you can be the guide of your life. You can make decisions that help shape who you are and the future you’re moving into.

Are you ready to bring more awesome to the world? Fun and Friendship await across all our different age groups!

PIPPINS 5-6 years: The adventure starts here. Make friends, tackle challenges, find adventure and earn cool badges that show off what you’ve learned along the way.

BROWNIES 7-9½ years: Brownies are becoming more aware and independent. Lead the adventure and have a say in what you do. Earn badges in teams and on your own.

GUIDES 9-12½ years: At Guides you are growing into a leader, making decisions about what challenge you’ll take on next – whether it’s community action or learning to surf.

RANGERS 12½-17 years: At Rangers, you’re setting your own goals and achieving them. You might travel to international camps or events and help lead the younger groups to share what you’ve learned.

AOTEAROA

Aotearoa units deliver GirlGuiding in a whole new way. If you can’t attend a local unit for any reason, Aotearoa can deliver the programme via post, email, online – or even by text.

CONNECT

Connect is a personal development programme for 16-25-year-olds. Travel, volunteer, learn new skills and stay in touch as you work towards valuable qualifications in a fun and supportive girl-led environment.

VOLUNTEERS

Volunteering with us is an opportunity to be a role model for girls and young women teaching them valuable teamwork, leadership and life skills. You don’t need to be an expert, we’ll provide you with the training you need. We have several volunteering options to suit your lifestyle. Get in touch with us to find out what works best for you.

“The girls make me smile (and usually laugh out loud!) all the time – but also give me a completely different perspective on situations which keeps me learning.”

Emma, Unit Leader


“I like that the other girls know about things that I don’t know and we share things.”

Lucy, 7 Years


“Guiding teaches me how much the environment means to us and teaches me how to enjoy doing things with friends.”
