What is the Australian Guide Program?
The Australian Guide Program is a non-formal educational program based on shared leadership and decision-making at all ages.
There are four main elements in the Australian Guide Program: physical, people, practical, and self. The program includes a variety of fun activities that focus on self-development in the areas of practical skills, physical development and relationships with people, appropriate to age and interests.
Guides of all ages are involved in decision-making, planning, implementing and evaluating their activities. Guiding is about being part of a team. Leadership development begins with the youngest Guides and develops as the girls mature.
The program is based around the seven fundamental concepts of Baden-Powell’s philosophy: Promise and Law, Outdoors, World Guiding, Guiding Traditions, Patrol System, Leadership Skills and Service.
The process used in the Australian Guide Program is: Discover, Decide, Plan, Do and Check.
