About us

Our vision:

All girls and young women are valued, inspired and empowered to take action to change their world.

Our mission:

We enable girls and young women to develop into confident, adventurous and empowered leaders in their local, national and global communities.

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.

We offer a non-competitive learning environment which is open-minded and values-based. It’s a supportive place to grow confident, adventurous girls who are ready to be tomorrow’s leaders.

GirlGuiding has a rich history dating back to 1907. More than 110 years later we are still focused on giving girls and young women the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of social, recreational and community action experiences that encourage them to help themselves and help others.
