Hello! Welcome to the Senior Section part of Girlguiding Leeds’ website. This page has information about opportunities available to Senior Section members as well as information about the team in Leeds County who support Senior Section members.

What is the Senior Section?
Senior Section members are anyone aged between 14-25 years. Some are members of Senior Section units, others are young leaders and others may be adult leaders. The opportunities to Senior Section are open to Girlguiding members aged between their 14th and their 26th birthday.
The Senior Section Team
Senior Section Advisers
Emma Gees and Lucy Packman
We are Emma and Lucy and we are the new Senior Section advisers for Leeds County. Emma is currently a leader with 95th Leeds Senior Section unit and Lucy is currently a leader with 66th Leeds (St Chad’s) Brownies.
We are keen to meet with Senior Section members and their leaders to find out how we can support you to get the most out of the Senior Section. We would also like to find out what you would like from Senior Section at a county level. The Senior Section will be undergoing changes over the next few years, in line with the programme changes, and it is important that every Senior Section member has their say and is aware of the changes. Girlguiding is also keen that members will have the opportunity to have their say at all stages of the process. HQ will send all members communications to explain key decisions on the new programme as they are made, throughout the next three years.
We are planning on running termly Senior Section meetings to hear your views and are also keen to visit units to offer advice and to talk about the wide range of opportunities available to Senior Section members. Watch this space for more information!
We will be writing in the county newsletter as well as on the Facebook page about the different opportunities available (British Youth Council, Advocate Panel, Chief Guide’s Challenge, Queen’s Guide Award, peer education and GOLD) with testimonies from Senior Section members who have experienced these opportunities.
