Funding to Increase Guiding

Minister for Youth Affairs, Jenny Mikakos has announced that Girl Guides Victoria are to receive funding of $1 million over a 4 year period from the Victorian State Government.

This funding will be used to target increased access to Guiding for disadvantaged girls via:

  • establishing eight new ‘Guides in Schools’ programs (school-based programs) for girls experiencing disadvantage
  • increasing diversity through Community Guiding programs
  • supporting participation for rural and regional girls into existing Guide Units
  • providing targeted support to rural and regional guide groups, helping to recruit and support over 80 girls
  • increasing participation in outdoor activities
  • supporting the development of new and existing adult volunteers

Minister for Youth Affairs Jenny Mikakos says:

“We’re encouraging more girls to get outdoors, make friendships and take on new challenges as Girl Guides.”

Ballarat Girl Guides featured on a TV news article releasing information about the funding.
