The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) is the largest voluntary Movement dedicated to girls and young women in the world. We are the world’s only movement for every girl and any girl because we believe that each of them deserves to be the best they can be. Our diverse Movement represents ten million girls and young women from 150 countries.

For more than 100 years Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting has transformed the lives of girls and young women worldwide, supporting and empowering them to achieve their fullest potential and become responsible citizens of the world.

Through our 150 Member Organizations, and by working directly with girls and young women across the world, we pride ourselves with delivering high quality programmes and international opportunities. We aim to give girls and young women dynamic, flexible and values-based training in life skills, leadership and citizenship.

Our strengths lie in innovative non-formal education programmes, leadership development, advocacy work and community action, empowering girls and young women to develop the skills and confidence needed to make positive changes in their lives, in their communities and countries.

There are five WAGGGS’ regions:

and five World Centres:

In an effort to expedite applications, members should take note the following:

  • Applicants must meet the membership requirements for GGC, which includes a valid police records check.
  • Complete and send your application to ic@girlguides.ca to be endorsed by the International Commissioner. These applications cannot be approved by provincial-level international advisers or any level commissioner. Do not submit your application direct to the World Centre, as it cannot be processed without the endorsement of the International Commissioner. Such direct submission will delay consideration of your application and may result in disappointment to you.
  • To ensure fair review and to address any questions or points of clarification that may be necessary, it is recommended that you submit your application to the International Commissioner a minimum of three weeks prior to the Centre's application deadline. You will be copied on the submission of your application to the World Centre you have selected.
  • The International Commissioner must be copied on all correspondence between you and the World Centre that you are applying to.
  • Upon a successful volunteer term, you may be eligible for a one-time subsidy offered through the Canadian World Friendship Fund.
