Rangers is for young women aged 14 to 18.

Rangers offers an exciting and flexible programme with a huge variety of challenges and opportunities for personal development.

Members of Rangers can choose from a wide range of unique and exciting opportunities, including travel in the UK and around the world, volunteering with younger girls within Girlguiding as a Mentor or Leader, and working towards valuable qualifications.

In this section of guiding, women participate in a fun and flexible programme known as Look Wider. The programme offers a range of activities and challenges and motivates members to try out new things. 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. The programme is linked to a variety of recognised qualifications or awards, both within and outside guiding.

The opportunities and challenges offered by Rangers can be followed by a group or by individual members, or by women not attached to a Unit (sometimes known as ‘Lones’). They are designed to be particularly beneficial to girls getting ready to embark on a career or go to university.

The ‘Look Wider’ Programme is based around eight programme areas known as Octants:

  • Creativity
  • Fit for Life
  • Community
  • Action
  • Out-of-doors
  • International
  • Independent Living
  • Personal Values
  • Leadership.

Rangers can undertake a wide range of awards and qualifications. These include the Leadership qualification, which helps them in running guiding units for younger girls, the internationally-recognised Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, the Queen’s Guide Award, the Commonwealth Award and other prestigious awards specific to guiding.
There are many international opportunities open to members of Rangers. They range from attending guiding events abroad to volunteering on community projects in developing countries.

Members can also take part in our successful peer education programme. Young women can become Peer Educators trained to run sessions on issues that affect girls and young women such as binge drinking, bullying, stress management and sexual health.

They can also make their voices heard by, for example, joining the guiding delegation at the British Youth Council, or having a say in the future of guiding by attending an innovate meeting.
