World Association of Girl Guides and Scouts (WAGGGS)


The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts is a global organization of 10 million girls. The Europe Region is one of five regions of WAGGGS, providing over 1 million girls and young women in Europe with the opportunity to develop leadership and life skills, so that they can become self-motivated, responsible and active participants of their local communities and at all levels of society.

WAGGGS represents, at European level, 62 national Girl Guide and Girl Scout organizations from 39 countries in Europe. Meet our members.

Together with each national association, we provide non-formal educational programmes and training to fulfill our mission: to enable girls and young women to develop their fullest potential to become responsible citizens of the world
and our vision: All girls and young women are valued and take action to change the world

Together, the Mission and Vision ensure that the work we do, our educational materials, leadership and development programmes, international campaigns, all contribute towards the building of a better future and achieving a better and safer world for girls and young women.

Our Member Organizations work with young people, through non-formal education, training and advocacy programmes, on a range of topics including girls’ rights, leadership development, social and environmental issues and many more. Girl Guiding/ Girl Scouting helps young people to understand the realities of living in today’s multicultural and intercultural Europe.

We have developed partnerships at European level with the Council of Europe, the European Commission and the European Youth Forum to represent the interests of our members and to influence and contribute to the issues affecting young people living in Europe today.
