Look Wider

The Look Wider programme offers a range of activities and challenges and motivates members to try out new things – it could be learning a language, playing a musical instrument, running a marathon, camping in the wilds or volunteering overseas. It is flexible and participants can take their chosen activities as far as they wish, from taster level all the way to gaining a qualification that is recognised outside guiding.

Look Wider is a programme that has been designed exclusively for members of The Senior Section. The programme contains eight octants, which aim to encourage young women to develop new skills and improve existing ones:
