Irish Girl Guides (IGG) provides a non-formal educational programme in the Republic of Ireland that is dynamic and flexible while offering values-based training in lifeskills, decision-making and leadership. Our Leaders work in a voluntary capacity and are trained to implement our programme in which the needs of the individual girl are a priority.

Guiding gives you the chance to help the next generation to learn to live and grow into adults equipped to cope with the joys, the anxieties, the fears, and the demands of life. Guiding encourages the best in us as it gives us the opportunity to discover new ideas, new skills, new experiences, and new friendships.

You will find that the friendships you form with other Leaders and your relationship with the girls will enrich your life and help with your personal development. It will also provide you with important lifeskills that are transferable to other aspects of your life such as career, travel, studies, family, and friendships.

There is a place for everyone in IGG and there are many different roles that you can take up that suit your availability and your skill-set
