Girl Guides SA

Girl Guides SA - Hands

By equipping girls with skills for life, Girl Guides SA has played a vital role in the empowerment of girls and young women throughout South Australia since our establishment in 1919. This positive influence is evident in the achievements of our Guides both Australia wide and overseas. Our alumni include a great many women, such as BHP Billiton Director Carolyn Hewson, Australian Food Guru Margaret Fulton, Author JK Rowling and Actress Emma Thompson, just to mention a few. These women illustrate that girls and young women are our future! 

 

In the spirit of female empowerment, we invite you to work with us through your choice of the following project areas. Together we can launch Girl Guides SA into an even brighter future!
