Young Leader and Young Leader Qualification Registration Process

Following a review of the use of the Young Leader form it has been decided that it is no longer needed.  For more details on adding the YL role to GO and how the YLQ can be registered please visit the Member System Updates page May 2021 section.

Peer Educators

Calling all our 14-25 year old members - would you like to make a difference as a Peer Educator?

You will be trained how to create a safe space for girls to discuss subjects like self-esteem, mental wellbeing and challenging gender stereotypes. You will visit units and run activities which teach invaluable life tools.

Inspire

You may be wondering, what is Inspire? Inspire is the Girlguiding offering for all 18-30 year olds. It doesn’t matter what your everyday role or level of interaction with Girlguiding is, all members within this age range are automatically part of Inspire. It is a place where you can make new friends, learn new skills and take advantage of the many awards and opportunities on offer. This can include completing Girlguiding qualifications and awards such as the Queens Guide award or Duke of Edinburgh Award, volunteering at events in the future, making your voice heard as a Girlguiding advocate, developing new skills or helping to train other members and share your knowledge and experience.

Get in touch

We’d love to hear from you! Let us know if there’s anything you would like to do at a county or local level – we are keen to grow our local Inspire communities.  You can contact the county Inspire Co-ordinators, Rebecca Park and Lizzie Butler via: [email protected] or via the Inspire Hertfordshire County Facebook page
